Manchester City defender Micah Richards is flattered by interest from Italy.

But though Richards' Italian representative Dario Canovi claims there has been interest from Inter Milan, the player says he's happy at City.

Richards confirmed: "It's always nice to be linked with clubs but I'm not putting it out there. Manchester City's my club. I've been here since I was 14 and I probably know the club better than anyone out of the players.

"Last season was a bit of a nightmare with injuries. I only played eight games after coming back from six or seven months injured. That's hard for any player and I'm just delighted to get a pre-season under my belt."
