Domenico Criscito: 'I won't leave Zenit St Petersburg'

Domenico Criscito insists that he will not be leaving Zenit St Petersburg to return to Italy this summer.

Zenit St Petersburg full-back Domenico Criscito has dismissed reports linking him with a move away from Russia this summer.

A number of Serie A clubs are believed to be considering making a move for the 27-year-old, but he is keen to continue working alongside Andre Villas-Boas for the foreseeable future.

"The rumours about the interest of AC Milan, Inter Milan, Roma and Napoli flatter me, but I'm fine in St Petersburg and I have not asked to leave," the Italy international told

"The relationship with Villas-Boas is great and I still have a two-year contract with the club. Sooner or later I want to come back to Italy, but now I'm only focused on Zenit."

Criscito joined Zenit from Genoa in 2011.
