MS SharePoint Server 2013 Permission Levels

I have an intranet which is on MS SharePoint Server 2013. I have users that I want to deny access on some sub sites, but be able to access the site collection, I have stopped the sub site from inheriting the permission and removed all the users and groups and only left the user that I want to access that sub site but the user that I have removed are still able to access the sub site.

How can I solve this?

can you please try the following:
1. Open the SharePoint (sub) site where the user should not have access to
2. Go to Site Actions (the gear image on the top right) -> Site Settings
3. Under User and Permissions you should have a link for "Site permissions"
4. In the top ribbon click on "Check permission" and enter the users login name and verify
This should give you a hint why/where the user still has access.

I have been able to see the different levels of permissions but the problem is still with removing the allow permissions on the user that I want to deny access to. When I have denied access to the site collection I can see the permissions say none but when I allow access to the site collection and deny it on the sub site the permissions still have allow and I want to remove that allow and I don't know how.

Are you allowing a group like 'Authenticated user' or 'Domain user' access to this site.  If so the user that you are denying is getting permissions through this general group.  I agree with Rainer Jeschor above; you should check the user whom you are attempting to deny permissions.  Whatever permission groups he is in is what is providing him access.  You cannot deny the user permissions and grant him permissions.  If you do, he will have permissions.

So get a listing of the permission groups your user (the one you are attempting to deny access) is in (using method described by Rainer Jeschor). Then check if your subsite is using one of the permission groups that the user is in. Then remove that permission group from your subsite.
