Capello warns England players not to seek transfers during World Cup

London: England manager Fabio Capello has warned his players not to arrange transfers during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Capello warned that if any of his squad members is caught negotiating moves to other clubs it will distract England`s attempts to win the tournament.

Ironically, Capello was criticised for taking part in a commercial venture during the competition, The Sun reports.

It would have caused problems, as it involved the England boss rating his own players for financial gain. But that was given up under pressure from the Football Association.

He said: "I hope the players do not change their team or have negotiations. It disturbs the players all the time."

David James, Joe Cole, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Matthew Upson and Emile Heskey are players who could be on the move this summer.
