Mark Rodgers, the agent of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, has insisted that his client has not demanded a trade.

Wilson wants to stay at Seahawks, Rodgers tells ESPN

Rodgers told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Thursday that the 32-year-old wants to play for the Seahawks, but if a trade were to be given consideration then only four teams would be in the running.

Wilson's agent named the Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints, Las Vegas Raiders and Chicago Bears as the only viable destinations for Wilson.

At the end of last season the quarterback voiced his frustration over the number of hits he had received and spoke of wanting a greater say in team affairs.

No-trade clause in Wilson's Seahawks contract

Wilson signed a four-year, $140m extension in April 2019 which includes a no-trade clause which needs to be waive for a deal to take place.

The Seahawks finished as division champions but were stunned by Los Angeles Rams in the NFL play-offs.
