Martin Demichelis is prepared to fight for his place at Bayern Munich, with a summer switch now unlikely.
The Argentina international has tumbled down the pecking order at the Allianz Arena and is no longer a regular fixture in the first team.
He was dropped to the bench for Bayern's 2-1 defeat to Wolfsburg last week, with rising star Holger Badstuber promoted in his place.
Angered by that snub, Demichelis boycotted the game in protest and stated that he wished to leave the club before the end of the summer transfer window.
However, with Bayern having priced him out of a switch, and reluctant to contemplate a loan deal, the 29-year-old has been forced to reluctantly accept that he will be sticking around until at least January.
"Barring a miracle, Misho (Demichelis) will stay at Bayern and fight to win his place back," his agent Adrian Vicente told Sport1.
"Bayern Munich want a transfer fee of €10million (£8.2m), which rules out a quick solution by Tuesday night.
"Furthermore, Bayern have ruled out a loan to another club."
Demichelis could yet be offered a reprieve by coach Louis van Gaal, as Bayern looked shaky at the back again in their 2-0 defeat to Kaiserslautern on Friday.
