Manchester City full-back Aleksandar Kolarov has dismissed speculation linking him with a return to Italy.
The 25-year-old arrived at City a year ago and has gone on to consistently nail down a spot in the first team despite an injury-hit start to the season.
The Serbian international has been linked with a return to Serie A with the likes of AC Milan, Juventus, Inter Milan, and Fiorentina all reportedly interested in the defender.
Yet despite the queue of Italian clubs believed to be coveting his signature, Kolarov insists that he is happy at Eastlands and will only get better after his first season in English football.
"Newspapers have to do their job and I can't change anything. Not even one club from Italy has called me but even if they would I wouldn't answer," he told Mondo.
"I have been playing for City for just one year and this season I only adapted to English football.
"I'm sure that next season I will be able to perform even better. I'm quite happy with how things are going for me in the UK.
"This season we reached our goals. We won the FA Cup and got ourselves a ticket for the Champions League.
"I'm sorry that I had many problems with injuries, especially in the first half of the season but I still managed to get 40 games. I'm really happy."
