Miralem Pjanic insists he wants to stay at Roma beyond January despite reported interest from Premier League.

The Bosnia-Herzegovina international, who moved to Roma from Lyon in 2011, has scored three goals and four assists in 12 Serie A appearances this season.

Pjanic has been a driving force behind Roma’s recent ascent to the top of Serie A, attracting interest from Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

The 23-year-old midfielder admitted he could leave the Serie A outfit in the future but insisted his immediate future lies in the Italian capital.

“I won’t exclude the possibility of one day playing elsewhere, but I doubt this will happen soon,” said Pjanic.

“It certainly won’t be in January, which is what some people have said, and certainly not in the next year and a half either.”

Pjanic has scored nine goals and made 19 assists in 69 appearances since joining Roma from Ligue 1 outfit Lyon.
