Manchester City new-boy Matija Nastasic has no plans to seek advice on playing in the Premier League from fellow Serbian and Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic.

The 19-year-old centre-back, signed on deadline day from Fiorentina, has often been described as the "new Vidic" but he has not spoken to the United player.

Nastasic told City TV: "We didn't talk because I am aware of the rivalry between Manchester City and Manchester United.

"Of course we can have a chat off the pitch but we never talked about matters on the field."

One Serbian that Nastasic feels more comfortable speaking to is his national team and now City team-mate Aleksandar Kolarov.

Nastasic said: "When I heard about the possibility of my transfer to Manchester City, we did talk. He told me a little bit about his experiences. But there is still time. We are playing together for the national team so we will talk some more."
