Yevhen Konoplyanka “probably won’t sign the contract with Roma,” said the Dnipro midfielder’s father.
Dnipro confirmed they were in advanced negotiations for a sale, but the player has also been linked with a host of other clubs, including Everton, Liverpool and Tottenham.
“He probably won’t sign the contract with Roma,” father Oleg Konoplyanka told Italian news agency ANSA.
“What I can say is that Roma would really like him to sign it, but my son wants to stay at Dnipro until June and then leave.
“He wants to stay and I think he will very probably remain here until his contract expires.”
Naturally, Dnipro are desperate to avoid that scenario, as it would mean losing one of their star players as a free agent in June.
