Roma goalkeeper Doni insists he wants to remain at the Stadio Olimpico, seemingly putting an end to Manchester City's hopes of snapping him up in the summer.

Reports suggest the Barclays Premier League side have already sounded out the Giallorossi about Doni and are preparing a 14million euro bid for the 29-year-old, who arrived on a free transfer in 2005.

But the Brazil keeper told Corriere dello Sport: "Beyond whatever other considerations, what I want to say is that I have no intention of leaving Roma."

He added: "My family is very happy in Rome, as I am in the city and the team. It has never crossed my mind to ask the club for a transfer. I signed a contract last year, the expiry date was fixed for June 2012, why on earth should I leave?

"Moreover, I really don't know anything about these rumours of an offer from Manchester City.

"And, above all, as far as I'm concerned, I reply categorically that I want to remain at Roma, I'm happy to remain here."
