Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has moved to dismiss the speculation linking him with a move away from the club.
Since arriving in England in 2008, the Belgian has matured into one of the game's best central defenders and skippered the Citizens to the Premier League title in 2011/12.
However, his form hasn't gone unnoticed and after City failed to retain their crown, speculation has been rife that he could leave this summer, with both Barcelona and Real Madrid thought to be considering him.
The 27-year-old insists he is going nowhere though and says he is only concentrating on helping City get back to the top of the Premier League standings.
"Speculations and questions about next season.. I'm not going anywhere," he wrote on Twitter. "I love playing for City and I've still got some unfinished business."
Despite Kompany's optimism, there is still a number of key decisions to be made at City before the start of the campaign, most notably who will be their next manager, and these issues may persuade punters to use their free bet to back their rivals Manchester United to retain the title.
