Vincent Kompany has rejected talks of a summer transfer away from the Etihad Stadium, insisting that his long-term future lies with Manchester City.

The 28-year-old defender has been a colossus at the heart of City's defence this season, and his inspired form for the duration of the campaign has earned him widespread acclaim, with reports emanating that some of Europe's top clubs have been closely monitoring the City captain's progress.

However, rather than speculating about his own future, Kompany is more interested in speaking about the forward plans of the league champions, with European success very much at the forefront of his mind.

Speaking to The People, Kompany said: "I'm happy in Manchester. Lots of people want me to talk about moving but what interests me is Manchester City.

"We can't stop with the title. We want to win the Champions League.

"Is it possible in three to four years? Maybe not, but when I see what's been achieved at the club in the last few years, nothing is impossible."

Fresh off the back of securing the Premier League title, Kompany believes City's latest triumph is just the beginning of a long and successful period in the club's history, with the Belgian outlining his belief that City are about to embark on a golden era.

He said: "The project here is not just a sporting one. It will bring a lot to the city and to the people.

"We're going to build a new training centre to bring together the junior and senior players.

"The project is to take the club back to its former glories but people won't see this for perhaps another 10 years. I'm happy to be part of all that.

"It's not a three-year project but rather one for 10, 15, 20 years. It's exciting to think I can be part of taking the club where it wants to go."
