Diakite rejects Russia for Napoli

Lazio defender Modibo Diakite has poured cold water on a move to Russia with hopes a transfer to Serie A rivals Napoli can soon be completed.

Modibo Diakite won't be moving to Russia.

The Frenchman is out of contract at the end of the season and has been heavily linked to second placed Napoli.

"Diakite has turned down an important bid from Russia," Diakite’s agent Ulisse Savini told Tuttosport. "The technical project takes precedence over the economic aspect.

"We'll be very happy if talks with Napoli end positively. There has been a phone call with Napoli and we'll talk about it next week.

"The interest is there, but we can't say that it is done until pen has been put to paper."
