Miguel Veloso insists he remains committed to Sporting Lisbon and is not considering leaving the club.

The Portugal international has persistently been linked with a move away from the Jose Alvalade, with several Premier League clubs believed to be tracking his progress.

Manchester City are the latest name added to Veloso's list of admirers as they plan to mount a serious challenge on all fronts next season.

But Veloso, who claimed back in March he "would like to leave the club", has now declared he wishes for a longer stay at Sporting.

"I only think of Sporting. Even in one or two years from now that is not going to change," he said.

SeasonFC Porto are just three points away from being crowned Portuguese league champions and Veloso could not hide his disappointment to see his side finish behind the Dragons once again.

"This was not a good season because we wanted to be champions. We worked for it but we could not meet the goals set at the beginning of the campaign," he concluded.
