Negredo slams talk of City exit

16 July 2014, 19:50

London - Spanish striker Alvaro Negredo has slammed suggestions that he wants to leave Manchester City because he is homesick.

Negredo, 28, has been linked with a move back to Spain only a year after joining City from Sevilla in a 20 million ($34 million) deal.

But in an interview on City's website on Wednesday, Negredo denied he was homesick and said: "I don't want to leave City.

"I'm very happy and very settled here. I had a difficult end to the season and that's why there has been a lot of talking, but I've been very happy here from the first day I arrived."

Negredo made an immediate impact at Eastlands last season and finished the campaign with 23 goals in all competitions.

The last of those strikes, however, came in January after he lost form in the second half of the campaign following a shoulder injury.

That slump cost him a place in the Spain squad for the World Cup in Brazil.

Atletico Madrid was reported to be a possible destination for Negredo following Diego Costa's departure to Chelsea, but it is understood City would not welcome any approach even if he had wanted to leave.
