Neymar to wait until next summer

Brazil international Neymar expects to stay at Santos until next summer's London 2012 Olympics when he hopes interest in his signature will be renewed.

• Neymar again denies Real deal in place

Speculation this week suggested that Neymar, 19, was on the brink of agreeing a deal with Real Madrid that would see him join the Primera Division club in the January transfer window after undergoing a secret medical in Sao Paulo.

But Neymar, who has also been linked with Barcelona and Chelsea, has dismissed the report and stressed his commitment to Santos despite the ongoing conjecture which he admits he is now "tired" of.

He said at a press conference: "It has already been decided, I won't leave Santos in the next transfer window, I will stay until the Olympics. I have not reached a deal with any club.

"Hopefully in next year's (summer) transfer window, we will have these same two great clubs interested in acquiring me again, or maybe other clubs. Until then, I have a lot of time to think about it.

"I'm tired of this. Every day I'm being sold to a different club. Today I'm saying once and for all that I'm not leaving Santos right now."
