Palermo defender Federico Balzaretti has ruled out a move to Serie A rivals AC Milan.
The 29-year-old full-back has reiterated his desire to remain in Sicily despite reported interest from Rossoneri head coach Massimiliano Allegri.
The player's agent Claudio Sclosa had claimed the former Juventus defender was keen on a move to the San Siro.
However, the Italy international has put an end to the rumours by claiming he is fully committed to the Rosanero.
He told Sky Sport Italia: "Go to Milan? I don't think so. I will remain at Palermo at the end of season, and for years to come as I want to respect my contract.
"But in future never say never to any option."
