Brazilian forward Robinho has distanced himself from speculation he wants to leave AC Milan, and has spoken of his desire to sign a new contract at the San Siro, reports Sky Sports.

The 29-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Italy in recent months, with his former club Santos believed to be keen on re-signing him.

However, Robinho has dismissed suggestions he is unhappy playing in Serie 'A' and reiterated his commitment to the AC Milan cause, after a turbulent period at the turn of the year.

"January was a difficult time for me, but now that feeling has passed," he said. "I'm very happy at AC Milan, I'm getting into shape and I want a fresh start here.

"I clarified with (Adriano) Galliani (Milan vice-president) that it was family matter and not a football issue. 

"I keep hearing that I should move back to Brazil come June, but I don't think I will."

The former Manchester City star is under contract in Milan until 2014, and he sees no reason why he cannot extend his stay far beyond that, after revealing a renewed ambition to succeed with the Rossoneri.

Robinho came close to leaving in the January transfer window, but after talks with Santos broke down, he is now very much focused on his future in Italy.

"When I came to Milan I told them I wanted to stay 10 years, I am still missing seven," he added. "Extending my contract? Sure. 

"We will talk about it at the end of the season. I can assure you that these six matches will not be my last at the Rossoneri.

"Santos tried to take me, but I never asked to be transferred. I spoke with my family and together we decided to stay here."
