Edin Dzeko pledges his future to Manchester City despite ongoing speculation regarding his future at the Etihad Stadium.

Edin Dzeko has insisted that he wants to stay at the Etihad Stadium and fight for a place in the Manchester City team.

The striker has failed to cement his place as a regular starter in Roberto Mancini's side but has dismissed suggestions that he would consider leaving the Premier League champions.

Dzeko said: "Every time I see a paper, for what seems like a year or more there is a story saying that I am leaving City, or that I want to go.

"But I've never said that so the stories don't come from me. I've always wanted to stay at City and fight for my place.

"My motto has always been'Never give up'."

The 26-year-old has scored four goals this season.
