City defender Dunne confident of Eastlands stay

Manchester City defender Richard Dunne is confident he will be staying at Eastlands for the new season, despite being linked with a move away from the club.

With City's high profile pursuit of John Terry and Joleon Lescott, Kolo Toure's capture from Arsenal and some stinging criticism from last season, Dunne's future had looked unclear with Stoke City, Sunderland and Tottenham Hotspur all mooted as potential suitors.

But the Irishman, who joined City in 2000 from Everton, is happy at the club and revealed Hughes has confirmed he remains part of his plans.

He said in the Daily Mail: "I want to stay at City. I'm excited by the project here and want to be part of that.

"I've been assured I don't have to leave and the manager never said I had to go. These are exciting times."

Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror claim that City want to see Joleon Lescott's medical records - before making a bigger bid for him.

City officials want to clear up concerns about Lescott's historic knee problems and will make the unusual move of asking to check on him ahead of any further offer - which could grow to beyond £22m.

Everton will be reluctant to part with the information, though, especially as boss David Moyes is determined to hold on to Lescott at any price; but Mark Hughes is still keen to bring him in.

Hughes said: ''We have made offers and shown interest, obviously that is seen by virtue of the bids we have put in. But they have been rejected and Everton are fully in their rights to do that, we respect that.

''We are still trying to speak to the people who will ultimately make the decision over whether or not the deal continues.

''Those conversations are still to take place but how long they will still be active is open to debate.''
