Parma coach Roberto Donadoni has admitted that he is flattered to be linked with Roma but remains focused on finishing the season strongly with the Crociati.
His side held onto 10th place in Serie A today with a hard-fought draw at Siena, with another season in the top flight now virtually assured.
Donadoni is adamant that he owes Parma his loyalty but refuses to completely reject rumours of a move in the summer.
He told Sky Italia: "They are seven games remaining, we must close the championship well and do not want to think about anything else.
"This talk happens often, it is the logic of things. but I lead all the way up to the end of the championship as Parma deserves. This is not to say no, but a few months ago I extended the contract with Parma and I want to get to the end.
"There are talks that are pleasing, but my route passes from Parma and we will do any assessment with Pietro Leonardi and especially with the president Tommaso Ghirardi."
Parma general manager Leonardi has insisted that Donadoni will honour his contract and not leave the club this summer.
