Montolivo rules out January exit

Riccardo Montolivo is proud of transfer links with Inter, but he insists he won't leave Fiorentina in January.

The Italian international's future is in doubt after he refused to commit to the Viola past his current contract which expires in 2012.

As a result, he has been paired with the Nerazzurri over recent months with some suggesting a New Year switch was imminent.

"I have read of Inter's interest and that is pleasing, but there is nothing concrete about the rumours," he stated.

"I am a Fiorentina player and I can categorically rule out a January departure. I'm 100 per cent sure of that."

Although the former Atalanta player insists he'll see out the season in Florence, he won't dismiss a summer switch.

"I need to think about the future and it has nothing to do with money," he continued when asked about his hesitancy is signing a Florence extension.

"I'll soon speak with the club again, without any problems, and the situation could be a lot clearer in two or three months."
