Aston Villa boss Dean Smith is not concerned about Manchester City buying back Douglas Luiz.
The midfielder has improved hugely since joining Villa from City last summer.
The 22-year-old is reportedly someone Pep Guardiola wants to bring back to the Etihad Stadium club.
He has started 21 consecutive Premier League games under Smith at Villa.
City can re-sign him for £30 million during any upcoming transfer window.
"He's done really well for Brazil," Smith told reporters.
"There's been talk about a buy-back option. I'm not aware of it, I don't deal with contracts. I deal with the players.
"What I know is Douglas Luiz is loving his time at Aston Villa and getting better and better. He's performing very well for Brazil as well.
"Long may that continue.
"Next summer's a long way off for me, we've got 31 games in the Premier League left still so I'm concentrating on that."
