Menez wants to stay at Roma

Despite expressing his unhappiness with a lack of playing time, Jeremy Menez would like to stay at Roma, according to his agent.

The France international playmaker told L'Equipe at the weekend that he was considering his options following the appointment of Vincenzo Montella.

Menez has rarely played since Claudio Ranieri resigned and feels that his replacement hasn't been clear about his role in the team.

Roma were disappointed with Menez's comments and were thinking about issuing the player with a fine, but talk of a transfer has been dismissed.

Speaking to Radio Centro Suono Sport, Menez's agent Alain Migliaccio said: "Jeremy is happy to be at Roma. He loves the city.

"Ranieri counted on him a lot, then Montella came in and he doesn't count on him, but it's a solution that can be resolved.

"Sure if it were to last two years, it's a situation that can't persist."

Asked about Menez's contract, Migliaccio said: "There hasn't been any contact with the club. Roma have his rights. If there is a dialogue it means that Roma's intention is to keep him."
