AC Milan defender Philippe Mexes has rubbished speculation linking him with a summer move away from San Siro.
The Frenchman has a contract until June 2015 with the Rossoneri and having struggled for playing time this season, he was tipped to leave the club in search of first team football at the end of the current season.
However, Mexes has made it clear he has no intention to leave AC Milan before his contract expires and instead hopes to sign a new deal.
“I have one year left on my contract and I plan to respect it until the end,” the experienced defender said to Sky Sport Italia.
“I hope to sign an extension. I know I am 32 and I don’t run after money. I earned this contract because I had been out of contract at Roma.”
Philippe Mexes joined AC Milan on a free transfer from AS Roma in the summer of 2011 and has since made a total of 55 Serie A appearances for the Rossoneri, scoring 3 goals.
He has featured in 16 league games this term, scoring 2 goals, and has recently won back his place in the starting line-up in Clarence Seedorf’s side.
