Slaven Bilic has dismissed reports linking him to the Manchester City manager position as a replacement for Manuel Pellegrini.

Bilic is currently manager of Besiktas, who are at the top of the Turkish Super Lig table.

The former Croatia international laughed off the rumours and reaffirmed his commitment to his current team, who face Liverpool in the Europa League on Thursday evening.

When asked about the reports by tportal, Bilic replied: "Yes, I have already received an offer from Manchester City, they said they will sell Nasri, Kompany and Toure just to get me. Ha ha!

"Of course there is no offer, and my ambitions lie with Besiktas."

Bilic played for West Ham and Everton between 1996 and 2000.
