Distin has claimed that he doesn't want to leave Man City and laughed off the Pompey link.
'I have read about Portsmouth in the newspapers, but I am under contract at Manchester City and can't discuss anything with another club,' he told Foot Transferts magazine.
'I would like to extend my contract at Manchester City. If not, I would have already left. Every year I have opportunities and if I really wanted to, I would have left by now.
'I am trying to find an agreement with City. If that doesn't happen, we will see. I have always said that if I leave for another club it would be to play in Eureopean competitions.
'I have a year left on my contract and at the moment we haven't agreed an extension. We have agreed the length - two extra years - but there remains one or two other details to sort out.
'I can't say what's caused the block. However, it doesn't really have much to do with the financial terms of the new contract.
'The club know my conditions to sort the situation out quickly. It is nowhere near terminal and things are moving.'
