Agent of Leeds United midfielder Tommaso Bianchi comments on his future

Bianchi's agent expects him to stay at Leeds United.

The agent of Tommaso Bianchi has told Tuttomercatoweb he expects his client to stay at Leeds United.

Italian outlet VicenzaToday reported at the weekend that the 26-year-old is a transfer target for Serie B side Vicenza.

Bianchi missed the last few months of the season at Leeds due to injury.

His agent has rejected claims he could move on, stating: "I think Thomas remains certainly with Leeds. He has a three-year contract and at the moment there is no chance to come back in Italy."

Is that it, will he stay?

Bianchi is with Leeds until he is told he is no longer wanted. If a firm bid is submitted for his services, and Leeds tell him he can go, his situation is likely to change.

Much may depend on the club's impending transfer business; if they were to sign a central midfielder like Joey Barton it would push him closer to the exit door, but until they add a player in his position, he is likely to feel he has as good a chance as anybody to impress new manager Uwe Rosler and start again from scratch.
