Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has played down suggestions he could leave the club in the summer.

The Belgian has once again struggled with injury this season and City have brought in club-record signing Aymeric Laporte in the January transfer window.

Kompany was asked about the possibility of him moving on at the end of the season but gave the suggestion short shrift.

“That’s not even a debate,” he said.

“If you’re fit, you have many options and a lot of clubs. If you’re not fit, you don’t have many opportunities and not many clubs.

“If I stay fit, I’ll want to play football at City. And if I’m not fit, I won’t have other options. I don’t know if I could muster the same motivation elsewhere.

“It may seem that I’m high maintenance, but I’m a good professional and I work so hard on my return. The longer I’m available, the more chance I’ll get to play more matches.”
