The agent of Raheem Sterling has denied the star was involved in a car crash after his £125,000 was found smashed with 'canisters of laughing gas' inside.

The Mercedes C63 AMG was found abandoned in London and then taken to Manchester for repair.

In pictures printed in The Sun, there are two canisters of laughing gas shown in the footwell of the car; the agent of the Manchester City and England winger, Aidy Ward, strongly denied that Sterling had been in the car at the time of the crash.

The paper quote a source as saying:  "The Merc was in London for days after the smash — it was just left on the street. Raheem wasn’t in the car at the time, he was training in Manchester. It looks like he lent it to a mate.

"Raheem needs to think about whether he’s hanging around with the right kind of people, especially as he is such a high-profile star."

The 20-year-old was filmed allegedly inhaling laughing gas, nitrous oxide, back in June.

Sterling is finally set to make his Manchester City debut tonight after a long summer of negotiations with former club Liverpool that ended in him making a £49million move to the Etihad. Manuel Pellegrini's team face West Bromwich Albion,
