Pastore keen to stay at PSG

The former Palermo star's representative has insisted that a summer move is not an option as he is happy at his current club

Javier Pastore's agent Marcelo Simonian has made it clear that the attacking midfielder has no interest in leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season.

The Argentine has struggled to hold down a first-team place under Laurent Blanc at the Parc des Princes, with Ezequiel Lavezzi, Edinson Cavani and Lucas Moura often deployed ahead of the 24-year-old.

Pastore has made only 12 starts in Ligue 1 this season and his lack of regular first-team action has led to reports linking him with a move away from PSG.

However, Simonian has reiterated that Pastore is settled in the French capital.

"Javier is happy in France," the former Palermo star's representative told Le Parisien.

"He feels good with his team-mates and the staff and works every day to keep playing for PSG.

"He thinks only of PSG and I can assure you that this is the truth."

Pastore scored his third goal of the season in all competitions on Wednesday as PSG beat Chelsea 3-1 in their Champions League quarter-final first-leg.

The 24-year-old has a contract with the Ligue 1 champions until June 2016.
