Kevin De Bruyne has shunned a move to Manchester City, revealing his intention to remain at Wolfsburg this season.
The Belgium international has been the subject of intense transfer speculation for several months after enjoying a stunning campaign in Germany last season, scoring 10 goals and incredibly laying on a further 20 assists.
City has constantly been linked as a potential destination for the former Chelsea playmaker, with potential fees surpassing 40 million euros ($44.3 million) mooted.
However, the 24-year-old appears to have finally put all doubt to rest, pledging his allegiance to Wolfsburg for another season as Dieter Hecking's men prepare for UEFA Champions League football and a potential Bundesliga title challenge.
Speaking briefly at the Sport Bild awards on Monday, De Bruyne said: "This season I will definitely be playing for Wolfsburg."
De Bruyne, who left Chelsea for a reported figure of €20M ($22.2M) in January 2014, has four years left to run on his contract at Wolfsburg.
