Matija Nastasic has revealed that he has adapted to life at Manchester City well following his big money deadline day move.

The Serbian central-defender sealed a £12m move to the Etihad Stadium from Serie A giants Fiorentina and has already made a successful transition to the Premier League.

Nastasic insists he has settled into life in England thanks to help from some of his City team-mates, including Aleksandar Kolarov and Edin Dzeko.

"I am very happy that I have immediately found some great friends here," the 19-year-old told Sportske.

"Kolarov is a man of great authority at this club and his words are well respected. He immediately gave me some great advice when I arrived at the club.

"There is also Edin, with whom I get along really great.

"It really helps that I can speak Italian because I don't have any problems in communication with manager Roberto Mancini and striker Mario Balotelli.

"It's so much nicer to be at a club where you don't feel like a stranger. I immediately found a new home at City."
