Adem Ljajic's agent has played down rumours of a move to Everton or Aston Villa by insisting the player wants to be a success at Fiorentina.

The 19-year-old Serbia international joined the Serie A club from Partizan in January 2010 after a proposed move to Manchester United fell though.

However, the attacking midfielder has yet to make a league appearance for Fiorentina this season, raising suggestions that he could seek a transfer in January.

Premier League duo Everton and Aston Villa were two names linked with a move for Ljajic but the youngster's agent Giorgio Parretti insists he is going nowhere for now.

"Fiorentina is an important team, and even if this is a very delicate moment for Adem he is 20 years of age and must have patience," said Parretti to Violanews.com.

"The offers from England? We don't escape; we want to win this battle in Italian football.

"With the help of the team, Adem can be an important player for Fiorentina."
