Juventus sporting director Alessio Secco insists Tiago is going nowhere despite the imminent arrival of Felipe Melo.

Tiago has had a disappointing two years in Italy, and the 28-year-old former Chelsea midfielder suggested earlier this summer that he may look to move on.

However, although Brazil international Melo is expected to complete his switch from Fiorentina shortly, Secco has revealed that new coach Ciro Ferrara feels Tiago still has an important role to play.

"We have had several offers for him, but he isn't going anywhere," he told Juventus Channel.

"We are strongly relying on Tiago as part of a midfield trio as that's what Ferrara wants."
