Richard Dunne is determined to remain part of the Manchester City revolution.

After a series of below-par performances this season there have been suggestions manager Mark Hughes could be prepared to cash in on the Republic of Ireland international.

But the former Everton defender told the Manchester Evening News: "The aim for every player here now is to stay at the club as long as possible and hopefully taste some real success. I am no different,"

He added: "We all have to play a part and we all know if we do not perform to the best of our ability in training and matches that we might not be here that long in what looks like being an exciting future.

"The opportunity is there for any player who has been at this club a long time and knows how bad things have been at different stages, to grab the opportunity to be involved in good times.

"It is up to individuals to take that chance."

Unfortunately for Dunne that chance will not come against Newcastle on Wednesday as the City skipper starts a four-match ban following his dismissal against Wigan earlier this month.
