Lazio defender Mobido Diakite is unlikely to be making a January move to Atletico Madrid, according to the players agent.
The promising Frenchman, whose contract runs until 2013 at the Stadio Olimpico had been linked with a move to Spain.
However, agent Ulisse Savini has admitted that the Primera division outfit have not made an enquiry regarding the 23-year-old stopper.
"The Spanish club have not enquired about Mobido," admitted Savini.
"Mobido is a player liked by many clubs but at the moment there are no negotiations going on.
"He is not playing much right now and it's clear that he would like to play more.
"But the choices made by the coach have to be respected, especially when the team is first in the standings."
Diakite, who did not feature last season in the Biancoceleste's plans, has made just one league appearance for Serie A leaders Lazio this term.
