Diego dismisses January move

VfL Wolfsburg midfielder Diego has rejected reports of a possible winter transfer to Brazilian side FC Santos as "not true."

Diego expects to remain at Wolfsburg this season.
Diego is staying in Germany for now.

Diego, 28, is currently on a contract until 2014 at Wolfsburg. The former Brazil international and the Bundesliga side, so far, have not made moves to extend his stay at Wolves.

The former Atletico Madrid man is believed to be on a monthly salary of 680,000 euros, which makes him one of Bundesliga's biggest earners.

At the weekend, reports in Brazil suggested that Diego had already agreed terms with Santos and could return to Brazil in January.

But speaking to kicker on Sunday, the Wolfsburg midfielder rejected the report. "That's not true," he told the paper. "That would be news to me."

Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs also dismissed the rumours.

Diego has missed three of Wolfsburg's last four games due to injuries and a suspension. The youngster Maximilian Arnold has so far successfully replaced Diego in the side's central midfield. The 19-year old has scored five goals in only eight starts.
