Inter Milan defender Jonathan insists that he does not want to leave the Italian club this summer.

Inter Milan defender Jonathan has insisted that he is happy at the club and does not want to move this summer.

The 27-year-old, who has two years left on his current contract at the San Siro, has been linked with a return to his native Brazil.

"I'm not thinking about going back to Brazil at the moment, I want to stay at Inter for the duration of my contract," he told the club's official website.

"If we then decide we want to renew it, that'd be great. I like Italian football even though I'm well aware of how difficult it is. I could have gone to play in Spain, but neither the team nor the contract was as attractive a prospect as coming here.

"When Inter came calling I immediately said to Santos that I wanted to come here and I'd like to stay here in Italy as long as I'm wanted."

Jonathan joined the Nerazzuri from Santos in July 2011.
