Quick-Look-Analysis of the XMM-Newton observation of the
GRB040223 field (D. Gotz et al. GCN 2525), based on
7 ks exposures in the EPIC pn and MOS cameras,
respectively, shows the presence of a source within the
INTEGRAL error circle.

At this stage of reduction the position error is expected to
be less than 6".
