Edgar Davids insists he has not asked to leave Internazionale.Edgar Davids insists he has not asked to leave Internazionale despite professing his discontent at his situation at Giuseppe Meazza.
The Holland international joined Inter last summer on a free transfer after his contract with Juventus expired, following a six-month loan at Barcelona.
He has featured sporadically under Roberto Mancini and, as a result, has lost his place in the Dutch national side.
During the transfer window, there were rumours that Davids would be shipped out of the club, with former side Juventus and Paris Saint Germain linked with the midfielder.
But Davids denies speculation he has demanded a move, although he has acknowledged he is unsure what the future holds in the summer.
"I didn't think I wouldn't play that much, otherwise I certainly wouldn't have come here," said Davids.
"It isn't true that I asked to be sold or loaned during January's market.
"What will I do in June? You can't talk about the future now, it's too soon.
"My thoughts now are for Inter, our aims and Saturday's match against Roma."
Davids is expected to be involved against Roma and he admits he always ensures he is in a strong physical condition to be at Mancini's disposal.
He added: "It depends on the coach when and how a player is utilised.
"My job is to train and to be ready for when I am needed and I work with seriousness every day."
