Manchester City forward Edin Dzeko's agent has rejected rumours that he is looking for a move away from the Etihad Stadium.

The Bosnian frontman's representative has said the striker wants to help City defend their Premier League title next season, and played down reports that he is preparing to leave the Manchester club.

Dzeko arrived from Bundesliga club Wolfsburg in January 2011 for a fee of £27 million, and has so far struggled to settle in the Premier League. The frontman enjoyed a goalscoring start to the 2011/12 season, but lost his place to Sergio Aguero, Mario Balotelli and latterly Carlos Tevez as the campaign wore on.

According to skysports.com, Irfan Redzepagic, Dzeko's agent, said: "Everything that is being said about Edin's transfer away from Manchester City is purely media speculation.

"Edin is more than happy at City and there is no way that he would go somewhere else."

The Bosnian international grabbed a crucial equaliser against QPR on the final day of the Premier League season, as City came from behind to secure their first title since 1968 in sensational style.

Even though the striker found himself on the bench for long periods of the season, Dzeko still managed to net 19 goals in 40 appearances - a return he will hope to improve upon with City next year.
