Football News
Heerenveen director Yme Kuiper has refused to comment on reports linking the club´s star striker Afonso Alves with a move to Manchester City.

The Brazil international is a reported target of City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson with former Heerenveen striker Georgios Samaras being lined up as a possible makeweight in the deal.

But Kuiper was remaining tight-lipped when quizzed on the matter on Thursday, telling the club website: "Obviously the rumour machine concerning Alves has come on at a pace. Our policy is that we do not react to rumours and that will remain this way."
