Rennes defender Rod Fanni will be content to start the new season with the French club after his summer move to Atletico Madrid hit a stumbling block.
Fanni, 28, rhas been linked with a summer move away from the Route de Lorient, with the Rojiblancos reportedly the right-back's favoured destination.
No move has yet materialised, but Fanni remains unconcerned.
"Somehow, I fall between two chairs,'' he told L'Equipe. "I have the impression of not being part of the plans and, on the other hand, that I am counted on.
"I do not have much choice, so I will wait. Atletico Madrid are interested and still care. But, as I have always said, I'm at a good club. I'm not frustrated.''
Fanni could start in Rennes' Ligue 1 opener at home to Lille on Saturday and is also hoping to be included in Laurent Blanc's first France squad for next Wednesday's friendly against Norway.
