Andrea Caracciolo's agent has refuted talk his client will be leaving Palermo during the January transfer window.
It had been thought Caracciolo could leave as he was well down the club's pecking order, however, Carvalho Amauri's injury has given him a chance in the side.
Caracciolo's agent Claudio Pasqualin believes the young striker is now happy to stay and is looking forward to trying to cement his place in the side.
"Until recently I believed Andrea could leave, but after Amauri's injury Rosanero need his services," said Pasqualin.
"He will have time and the opportunity to show he deserves the faith of the coach and of the clubs' officials."
