Gigi De Canio is happy to lead Lecce into Serie A next season.

De Canio insists he is committed to Lecce, despite talk of bigger clubs keen to lure him away.

"My future is in Lecce," he said. "I am a serious person, who abides by his commitments. Together the club has proven to be a winning team. We have worked with tenacity, convinced that in the end the hard work would be repaid."
