The agent of Borrusia Dortmund centre-back Neven Subotic, who is known to be a long-term target of both Chelsea and Arsenal, has rubbished rumours that the Serbian will be moving to the Premier League come the turn of the year.

Since losing defensive pair John Terry and Alex to injury, it had been speculated that Chelsea were putting together a January bid for Subotic, with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger also rumoured to be ready to finally make his move for the 21-year-old after losing Thomas Vermaelen to a mystery Achilles setback.

However, Subotic is enjoying a Bundesliga-topping season with Dortmund this campaign, and his representative, Steve Kelly, insists there is no chance of his client leaving Germany this winter – telling Sky

“I am aware of the latest rumours linking Neven with a move to England, but I can categorically rule out Neven leaving Dortmund in January. Neven is happy at Dortmund and he is focused on helping them to stay at the top of the Bundesliga.”

There you go.

    Oh well, I would rather have someone like Phil Jones as he is the type of player who can walk in JT’s footsteps

    Another snub for the whores from SW6, deserved.

  3. Adam Johnson says:

    Well he is the best, but hardly that someone could get him that cheap. Chelsea will have to double their offer!

  4. @Jozy says:

    Another disgraceful American who chose to ignore the country that gave his family everything and decided to ply his game for another country. We do not need this moron in Arsenal. Let him play for Chelsea.

    @Jozy the clue’s in the name, you know Neven Subotic, if his family are Serbian and he feels Serbian then it doest’t matter if he lived in America for a period of time its not his country and he ain’t a disgraceful American your a disgraceful American. Peace

    On a another note Subotic is quite error prone and probably wouldn’t have a great time in the Premiership with any club.
