Abel Hernandez insists he won't skip out of Palermo if they're relegated.

He is expected to be a wanted man should the Rosanero fail to survive in the top flight.

"I want to respect the three years that I have left on my contract," the striker told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"That's because I'd like to thank President Maurizio Zamparini and the medical staff here.

"There was a bit of a problem because my former agent did speak to other clubs about me, but I want to stay here."
