Roma midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini reveals that he intends to remain at the Stadio Olimpico beyond the end of the season.

Midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini has suggested that he intends to snub interest from the Premier League in order to remain with Roma.

Since last summer, Pellegrini has been linked with a switch to either Manchester City, Manchester United or Liverpool having only been used on a rotational basis at the Stadio Olimpico.

However, the Italy international has claimed that he wants to fight for his place at the Serie A side rather than move to English football.

The 21-year-old told reporters: "It's important for young players to want to grow and improve but I'm really happy at the club where I grew up.

"The objective of every player is to win trophies and like [Daniele] De Rossi and [Francesco] Totti have stated in the past, winning a Scudetto here would be the equivalent of winning ten elsewhere."

Pellegrini has made 19 starts and 11 substitute appearances for Roma during the current campaign.
