City on Nastasic:

Serbian centre-back Nastasic was a revelation for Fiorentina in Serie A in 2011/12, emerging as one of the brightest defensive prospects in the Italian top flight and he joined City on 31 August in a deal that saw Stefan Savic go the other way.

He has enjoyed a meteoric rise since being handed his debut at Fiorentina by Roberto Mancini’s former assistant, Sinisa Mihajlovic.

Nastasic’s name was made in the Viola’s 0-0 draw against AC Milan where the defender belied his years with a mature performance marking Swedish superstar Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Matija could also become a threat from set-pieces for the Blues, thanks to his 6ft 2 frame but he showcased his composure on the ball for his first Serie A goal in February, with a well-taken finish on the volley against Cesena.

He joined the Florence outfit in 2011 from Partizan Belgrade for a reported €3m and has represented Serbia twice, linking up again with Mihajlovic who handed him his international debut against Cyprus earlier this year.

Matija enjoyed a remarkable first season at City, winning the Young Player of the Award at City Live in August 2013 for performances that belied his years throughout the 2012/13 campaign.

Matija won his first Premier League title in 2013/14.
