Leeds United goalkeeper Marco Silvestri wants to stay put.

The partner of goalkeeper Marco Silvestri has quickly moved to dismiss suggestions he could push for a move away from the club.

Rumours circulated on social media on Wednesday evening, unattributed in a report to any newspaper or website.

Asked if the claims held any truth, Silvestri's partner Sofia Jamal acted swiftly to refute the claims, responding to a supporter via social media to say simply: 'Not at all'.

Silvestri has been Leeds United's first choice goalkeeper for the last two seasons, since signing from Chievo, and has played under five different managers.

His first team place has largely been assured, coming through a rough patch earlier this campaign under Uwe Rosler, and was the man-of-the-match in the recent win over Cardiff City.

The 25-year-old has a contract at Elland Road until 2018, and is a former Italian under-21 international.

Earlier this week Danny Rogers, a goalkeeper at Aberdeen who had been linked by The Scottish Sun as a summer target for Leeds, signed a new deal at the Scottish side, ruling out a potential replacement for the Italian even if he did leave.
