Manchester City captain Richard Dunne has admitted that the arrival of new boss Mark Hughes may have tempted him to stay at Eastlands according The Sun.
The defender had been strongly linked with a move away to a number of premiership clubs and a move was expected to materialise within the next week.
However, the appointment of Hughest could be the security Dunne has needed to stay at CIty.
“It was disappointing that Sven had to leave, but in Mark Hughes we have got an exciting young manager who has done particularly well at Blackburn,” Dunne told the Manchester Evening News.
“Premier League experience does count for a lot and he has proved that he can mix it with the best over the last few seasons.
“No team ever relished going to Ewood Park when he was in charge. They established themselves as a top-10 side and did well in the cups too.”
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I know from speaking to players who have been in his side that he is a disciplined and highly-regarded coach, and that bodes well for the club. ”
He added: “I will have to wait and see now which way the club is going to go. There is certainly the need for some stability.”
