Robinho's agent moves to deny rumours linking the Brazilian with a return to Santos.

The agent and father of AC Milan attacker Robinho has insisted that his client intends to stay at the club, despite rumours of his exit.

A move to his former club Santos has been speculated upon, with Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri moving to deny these rumours recently.

Now Robinho's father and agent Gilvan de Souza has further rubbished the reports.

"It's all speculation, every day the media invents new destinations - Atletico Mineiro, Santos, Sao Paulo, but Robinho won't leave Milan, he has a contract until 2014 and wants to respect it," Sky Sports News quotes De Souza as saying.

"Robinho is happy when he plays for Milan, and recently he has been playing. He likes the club so for now he will not return to Brazil.

"They always talk about his intentions, but it's up to me and his lawyer to on his behalf."

Robinho has struggled to break into the Milan side this season.
