BRADFORD CITY chairman Geoffrey Richmond has dismissed speculation linking Benito Carbone with a move to Torino, insisting the gifted Italian will remain at Valley Parade to help the club back into The Premiership.
Reports emanating from Italy claimed that Torino were in negotiations with The Bantams about a possible return to his native country for the former Internazionale attacker.
However, Richmond has moved to reassure the Valley Parade faithful that their talisman will remain in West Yorkshire.
"There has been no contact between us and any club, not that I am aware of anyway," he told planetfootball.com.
"There have been no negotiations regarding Benito Carbone and I can categorically state that he is going nowhere."
The Bantams, meanwhile, who are currently riding high in Division One, have been linked with a move for Piacenza`s imposing defender Alessandro Lucarelli.
