City boss Roberto Mancini has told the Paraguay international he is surplus to requirements at Eastlands and can leave in the January transfer window.

Steve McClaren's Wolfsburg were believed to be lining up Santa Cruz as part of a swap deal for Bosnian hotshot Edin Dzeko, but the 29-year-old's representative Jan van Baal appears to have scuppered such suggestions.

"I am not aware of the interest of Wolfsburg," Van Baal told the Daily Express.

"They are not interested in the player."

Santa Cruz has endured a torrid spell at City since making his £17.5 million move from Blackburn in July 2009, and the forward has scored just three goals in 20 Premier League appearances.

Meanwhile, Dzeko has committed himself to the Bundesliga club for the remainder of this campaign.
