Zimbabwe striker Benjani Mwaruwari admits he would "love" to get the chance to play for Portsmouth again - but stressed it was up to Manchester City if they wanted him to leave.

The 30-year-old, who moved to City during the 2008 January transfer window, has fallen down the pecking order at Eastlands after the arrival of Roque Santa Cruz, which could soon be followed by Carlos Tevez.

"I have good memories and I have a special relationship with the Portsmouth supporters," Benjani said.

"I left on a good note and I have nothing but good feelings about them, that is for sure.

"I would love to play for them again, but at the moment I am contracted to Manchester City. I have a job to do here until I am told anything else.

"There is a lot of talk about my future, but at the moment I am still a Manchester City player."

Benjani, quoted in the Portsmouth News, added: "Obviously there is always speculation in football, though. I am happy to stay unless the club declare they do not want me any more.

"In football, you never know what is around the corner."

Benjani started just eight games for City last season because of fitness problems.
