Real Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra will not be leaving the club this month and will fight for his place in the team, according to his agent.

Diarra has been linked with moves to Manchester United, Liverpool, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain, but agent John Williams claims that his client is 'satisfied' at the Bernabeu, despite only featuring in 12 games this season.

"I can say that Diarra will not leave Real Madrid in the winter. Team coach Jose Mourinho never questioned his professionalism in training or in matches," Williams told Marca. "Lass is satisfied and will fight for a place in the team."

The former Chelsea, Arsenal and Portsmouth midfielder is contracted to the club until 2013, but has slipped down the pecking order following the arrival of Germany international Sami Khedira in the summer.
