Okaka, who spent the second-half of last season on-loan at Fulham, has been strongly linked with West Bromwich Albion, who are managed by former Lazio and Italy midfielder Roberto di Matteo.

"I don't know anything about West Bromwich's interest,'' Okaka's agent Domenico Scopelliti told asromanews.it.

"Stefano will not move from Rome. He has the confidence of the coach (Claudio Ranieri) and is happy with his current situation.''

Okaka came on as a second half substitute in Roma's goalless draw against Cesena on Saturday. The 21-year-old is under contract with the Serie A club until June 2012.
