Micah Richards has dismissed reports linking him with a move to Bolton.

The 20-year-old has struggled to maintain his form for Manchester City this season, and speculation surrounding his future has continued to increase.

Both Wanderers and local rivals Wigan Athletic have been linked with the defender, but Richards has labelled the rumours 'utterly ludicrous'.

"I was shocked to wake up and read in the newspapers that I have been linked with a move away from City, with speculation suggesting I could move to Wigan or Bolton in a £5million deal, read a statement from Richards.

"These rumours are the first I've heard about it, and they're utterly ludicrous.

"I'm as happy as happy comes at Manchester City, and I feel the club is now moving in the same direction I knew it would.

"On a personal level, playing for Manchester City can take me to next level, and I hope to stay here and win things."
