Linked with a move away, the Netherlands midfielder said he was happy at the Serie A club

Roma's Kevin Strootman insists he is happy at the club, despite reports linking him with a move away from the Stadio Olimpico.

Strootman, 28, signed a five-year contract in May last year and has been part of a Roma side that have finished in the top three in each of the past five Serie A seasons.

He had previously joined the club from PSV Eindhoven in 2013, but has to overcome serious injury to regain his place as an important member of the Roma squad.

His success has seen his name again pop up in rumours indicating he may be nearing an exit from the capital club.

However, the Dutch midfielder was asked about his future following Monday's 1-1 draw between Italy and Netherlands and said he was happy at Roma.

"I am only going to talk about the national team. I have a contract and I haven't signed for anyone else," Strootman said.

"I am happy at Roma and that's enough."

It is not the first time Strootman's name has been heavily linked to big clubs.

Prior to his move to Roma, reports had him near a deal to join Premier League giants Manchester United.

However, the midfielder denied there was any truth to those rumours earlier this year and stated he was happy with the Serie A side.
