Atletico Madrid defender Luis Amaranto Perea has dismissed rumours linking him to Milan, insisting that he is very comfortable where he is.

The Colombian has been one of the few shining lights in Atletico's stuttering start to the season, but maintains that he has no plans to move to a more illustrious club.

"I didn't know that there was interest in me but I don't care if there is. My career is currently at Atletico and I want to do big things here. Nothing else is in my plans at the moment," he demanded.

Perea also shrugged off his Atletico's position in the bottom half of La Liga, and backed them to come good soon.

"We have had some problems and the team hasn't shown what it's really capable of yet," he conceded.

"But I fully trust in my team-mates and I don't even think it's necessary to reinforce the team during the winter break. Of course I am not the person in charge of making that decision but I trust a lot in this team."
