Fiorentina star Stevan Jovetic says that he turned down an approach from Manchester City during the summer.

Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic has revealed that he rejected the opportunity to move to Manchester City this summer.

The 22-year-old was touted as a possible target for City boss Roberto Mancini and recent reports have emerged that the Premier League champions are close to agreeing a pre-contract for June next year.

"I stopped those negotiations," Jovetic told Gazzetta dello Sport. "When Manchester City came forward with strength, I had already decided to stay in Florence.

"Am I happy to still be here? Absolutely and I have no regrets. The objective here is to get back into Europe and I won't leave here until this club is competing at the levels it should be."

The forward is also believed to have been a target for Juventus.
