Hernanes is happy at Lazio

Hernanes' future at Lazio continues to be called into question, but his agent says the midfielder is happy where he is.

Reports in Italy suggest that the Brazilian is a January transfer target for Inter Milan, while a number of other clubs are also said to be closely monitoring his situation.

Hernanes has spent the last two years in the Italian capital, during which time has made over 100 appearances for Lazio.

His representative insists the 27-year-old is intent on taking in many more outings, despite rubbishing claims that talks regarding a new contract could soon be opened.

"I'm not planning any meeting with Lazio and we are not thinking about an extension to his contract, because there is no need," Joseph Lee told calciomercato.it.

"His current deal expires in 2015 and there is plenty of time to talk about it.

"The future? Hernanes is happy in Rome, and with the new coach, and the team is going well. There is no reason to think about a move." Don't miss any live and exclusive football coverage this festive season. Click to visit Sky Sports' Festive Calendar
