Neven Subotic flattered by Manchester City talk but Borussia Dortmund defender rules out a move to Eastlands

By Sportsmail Reporter

Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic has dismissed rumours linking him with a move to Manchester City this winter by affirming his desire to stay with the Bundesliga club.  

Subotic is a reported target of the big-spending Premier League outfit but he insists he has a duty to Dortmund and their coach Jurgen Klopp to see out his contract, which he has only just extended.  

'Of course it is flattering to have my name linked with a top club in England,' he told the Bild newspaper. 'Manchester City are so rich that they can practically buy any player they want.

'I have only just extended my contract until 2014 and I am also very happy privately in Dortmund.  

'I still want to achieve something with Dortmund and I owe this also to Jurgen Klopp, who brought me here from Mainz.'


Subotic is currently in London with the Serbia team preparing for Wednesday's international friendly against South Korea.  

And he would rather not hear any more about a potential offer from any other club, saying that 'dealing with a transfer when you are in the middle of a season always brings bad luck, in my eyes.'
