Reyna dismisses talk of City exit

Reyna captained USA in last summer's World Cup
Midfielder Claudio Reyna has rejected speculation he will quit Manchester City and return to the United States during the January transfer window.

Reyna, 33, is in the final year of his contract and admits several American sides have inquired about his services.

He told the club website: "There are clubs back home that are interested but at the moment there is nothing to it.

"I am enjoying my time here, I am playing and I want to keep playing for my position."

My intentions were to first get back in the team and hold my position - that is what I am doing

Reyna, who starred in four World Cup finals for his country and captained them in Germany last summer, has spoken of spending the latter stages of his career in Major League Soccer.

But the veteran midfielder is determined to remain a regular member of Stuart Pearce's preferred starting line-up and has dismissed any talk of a return home in the foreseeable future.

"Those rumours start about any American player once they hit my age," added Reyna, who has also played at Rangers and Sunderland.

"But I am not sure where they are coming from. It is just natural."

"My intentions were to first get back in the team and hold my position. That is what I am doing."
