Germany international goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand says he will not be leaving Valencia for Wolfsburg in the winter.
The former Stuttgart shot-stopper has failed to pin down a regular first-team place at the Mestalla, with new coach Ronald Koeman preferring veteran Santiago Canizares.
But Hildebrand says rumours of a potential move to Wolfsburg are unfounded, despite his current 'difficult' situation.
"There's no question of that," he told dpa.
"I want to and will establish myself here in Valencia. It's a difficult situation at the moment, but I like it here."
Speculation as to a new goalkeeper at Wolfsburg is rife after coach Felix Magath substituted regular No.1 Simon Jentzsch at half-time during last weekend's 2-2 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt.
Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has also been linked with a move to the VW Arena and club captain Marcelinho has said he would love to see the veteran join Wolfsburg.
Marcelinho told Kicker: "Jens Lehmann is an excellent goalkeeper with a lot of experience. He would be a real gain for our team and would be very welcome."
