Ajax starlet Eriksen admits to rejecting Man City

Ajax Amsterdam young gun Christian Eriksen has revealed he turned down the advances of Manchester City.

The 19-year old Danish attacking midfielder has been targeted by the big-spending City but he rejected a potential move as he feels it wiser to remain at a club where he can continue his development in the first team.

"My agent told me about interest from Manchester City, but it is nothing I thought about," he said.

"There is no point moving to a club where I will sit on the bench.

"If I moved to City there would be a big risk."
