HAMBURG, Germany — Belgium midfielder Kevin de Bruyne says he is staying at Wolfsburg this season.

De Bruyne has been linked with a move to Premier League side Manchester City but the 24-year-old said at the Sport-Bild awards Monday that he liked the familiar atmosphere at Wolfsburg.

Pressed further, he added, "I, Kevin de Bruyne, will definitely play this season at VfL Wolfsburg."

De Bruyne, recently named Germany's footballer of the year, has a contract with Wolfsburg to 2019.

The former Werder Bremen midfielder joined Wolfsburg from Chelsea in January 2014, going on to score 13 goals and set up 27 more in 51 Bundesliga games for the side. He was instrumental in Wolfsburg's second-place finish last season.
