Football: Stam snubs transfer to Maine Road.
The giant Lazio stopper has ruled out playing in England ever again.
Keegan wanted the pounds 10million-rated Dutchman to lead his side's return to the Premiership next season.
But the former Manchester United player has given the offer short shrift.
Stam said: "I know there was interest from City and my agent talked to them.
"But I'm enjoying life in Italy and if I ever leave Italian football I will only go back to Holland to play."
Stam also rejected claims that cash-strapped Lazio will sell him in the summer.
Stars Alessandro Nesta and Hernan Crespo are also expected to be sold but Stam said: "It's my decision where I play my football and I'm not going anywhere."
