The Swedish international had a sensational campaign on loan in Holland last season, scoring 20 goals in 23 appearances for Feyenoord.
Despite having two years left on his current deal, City have now moved to agree a long-term extension with Guidetti.
The player is currently working his way back to full fitness after contracting an illness towards the end of last season which ruled him out of pre-season.
That prevented any possible loan move, with a host of clubs looking to land his coveted signature.
Now Guidetti will remain with City until January - shunning any interest from the Championship.
Indeed Sky Sports understands that despite Feyenoord's desperation to re-sign him, should Guidetti leave on loan it will be to either another Premier League side or to the top flight in Spain, Italy or Germany.
