Jovetic rules out Fiorentina exit

By Football News

Fiorentina playmaker Stefan Jovetic has ruled out a move away from the Serie A club in the January transfer window.

Reports emerged in August that Manchester City were in advanced talks over the transfer of the 23-year-old, but an agreement was not reached before the summer transfer deadline.

Roberto Mancini is reportedly preparing to ignite the deal with a second approach in the January transfer window, however Jovetic has moved to quell such speculation by insisting he intends to stay with his current club.

"I am fine here, I will not go. I have no thoughts about leaving, even if in life you never know what might happen," he told Rai Sport.

"At the moment there is no way I will leave Fiorentina although in the life of a footballer you can never be 100 percent sure of anything."

The Montegero international's impressive displays for the Florence-based club have also reportedly sparked the interest of a number of other clubs, most notably fellow Serie A side Juventus.

Jovetic has made 92 appearances for the Viola since joining in 2008, scoring 32 goals.
