Diakite staying at Lazio

Lazio defender Modibo Diakite will not be moving to Juventus in the January transfer window, according to the player's agent.

The 25-year-old centre back had been linked with a move away from Stadio Olimpico this summer, but his agent insists the former Pescara stopper will stay with the Biancocelesti.

“At the moment there is no news of any kind,” Ulisse Savini told Radio Sei.

“Diakite to Juventus in January? From what I know, the player is not in Antonio Conte's plans.”

Frenchman Diakite has played over 50 times for Lazio since joining the club in 2006, scoring two goals.
