Nigel de Jong wants to stay with Manchester City and insists he has no concerns over his contract situation, according to Sky Sports. "There is no concern about my contract," said De Jong. "I have spoken my mind, it is up to the club to decide what they want to do now. I have been here for three years and I am happy. I am here to win prizes. We won the FA Cup last season, now we are doing well in the Premier League. For me there is no reason to move on."
The Daily Mirror report tha AC Milan are interested in signing Carlos Tevez - if the Argentine manages to sort his temperament. Milan assistant coach Mauro Tassotti said: “Tevez to Milan? He is a great player but we need to evaluate his condition and his head because as well as technical ability, you need to be mentally ready to play. There are problems with Manchester City but it could be an idea.”
The Sun claim that City defender Stefan Savic is a target for Roma in the January transfer window, although the story has no quotes to back up the claim.
Finally, The Daily Star report that City are set to unveil a £200m kit deal with Umbro at the end of the season. The club are currently three years into a ten-year, £6m-a-season contract, but the deal allows the terms to be reviewed based on City’s progress. And the new tie-up with Umbro could see their annual payment rocket to £26m.
