Agent insists Menez will be staying with Roma

Roma forward Jeremy Menez will not quit the Italian capital for a return to France, according to his agent.

The 21-year-old admitted on Monday he would be forced to consider a return to Ligue 1 in January if he is not guaranteed first-team football with the Giallorossi.

He has made just 10 appearances for the Serie A side since joining from Monaco in late August in a 10.5million euro deal.

But the Frenchman's agent, Jean-Pierre Bernes, insists his client will be staying put.

He told France Football: "Menez will stay in Rome, He won't leave in January. There's no problem with Roma. I came to the Italian capital two days ago, I've spoken to the club directors and everything's fine.

"They believe in Menez, who's young and who has a great deal expected of him. He has great ability but he needs to show it on the pitch."

On Monday Menez was quoted in the same magazine as saying: "If I'm not playing I'd prefer to leave. I'd like to go back to France, as I know it well and I could adjust easier.

"I'd like to play for Paris St Germain seeing as I come from that area, or for Bordeaux. Of course I'd also love Lyon or Marseille, but I don't think there's room for me and they won't be interested.

"I've had no contact at the moment. I want to play for France in the 2010 World Cup, so I need to put myself in the shop window."
