Huntelaar transfer rumours denied

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is staying at AC Milan, according to the Netherlands international's agent.

The 26-year-old striker has endured a difficult 2009 after joining Real Madrid from Ajax in January. He started only 13 matches for the La Liga giants before sealing a switch to the Rossoneri in the summer.

However, after failing to find the net in seven matches for the hapless Serie A outfit, rumours have linked the forward with another transfer when the winter transfer window opens.

However, Huntelaar's agent, Arnold Oosterveer, said: "The sale of Klaas in January? I don't want to comment on things that are just rumours.

"The truth is that Milan have not given us any signs in that respect. It's a difficult moment for Milan and Huntelaar is feeling it too, but I think both club and player will come good."
