Messina defender Alessandro Parisi has reaffirmed his commitment to the club amidst speculation that Udinese are preparing a bid.

Parisi has enjoyed an excellent campaign for the Sicilian outfit and has also reportedly caught the eye of Juventus.

The talented stopper was a mainstay of a Messina side that proved the surprise package in Serie A last term - finishing a credible seventh - and has now moved to play down talk of a move away from Stadio Giovanni Celeste.

''I'm certain that my future will not be at Juve because in that area they are quite well covered,'' Parisi told the Corriere dello Sport.

''Many market forces must change, otherwise, my experience of the Old Lady is limited to the recent Japanese tour.

''I feel really good in Messina. It's true in January Udinese wanted me but president Franza didn't want to sell.

''Recently, there has been other contacts but any agreement has not been found.

''I feel good here. Surely, Udinese will play Champions League but I am happy here.''
