Real Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra is happy at the Spanish club and wants to stay, according to his agent.

The former Chelsea, Arsenal and Portsmouth man found himself out of favour at the Bernabeu last season.

Manchester United, Tottenham and Juventus had been suggested as possible destinations for the 26-year-old.

But John Williams told French magazine Le 10 Sport: "Contrary to what is being said, Lass does not want to leave Real Madrid."

Diarra has experience of the English game after spells at Chelsea, Arsenal and Portsmouth.

But Williams added: "He has two years left on his contract and is feeling well in Madrid.

"I have not opened negotiations with any club in either England or Italy, but if there is a great offer then we'll study it."
