Football: Stam snubs transfer to Maine Road.

JAAP STAM has snubbed Kevin Keegan's bold bid to take him to Manchester City.

The giant Lazio stopper has ruled out playing in England ever again.

Keegan wanted the pounds 10million-rated Dutchman to lead his side's return to the Premiership next season.

But the former Manchester United player has given the offer short shrift.

Stam said: "I know there was interest from City and my agent talked to them.

"But I'm enjoying life in Italy and if I ever leave Italian football I will only go back to Holland to play."

Stam also rejected claims that cash-strapped Lazio will sell him in the summer.

Stars Alessandro Nesta and Hernan Crespo are also expected to be sold but Stam said: "It's my decision where I play my football and I'm not going anywhere."
