Subotic: Impressing in Germany
Neven Subotic's agent has played down talk linking the defender with a move to Manchester City.
Fresh reports have suggested City are lining up a mega bid to lure Subotic away from Borussia Dortmund in the January transfer window.
Subotic's future has been the subject of conjecture for some time, with the Serbian international regarded as one of the best young defenders in world football.
The talented 21-year-old has been an ever present for Dortmund in the Bundesliga this term and he only signed a long-term contract last summer.
Subotic's representative, Stephen Kelly, claims the City link is just speculation and admits any move this month is highly unlikely.
"I have not heard anything from anybody at Manchester City. It is just speculation," Kelly told skysports.com.
"I would be really surprised if Neven was to leave Dortmund in January.
"It would take something special for Dortmund to sell him as he is on a long-term contract there."
