Lazio defender Modibo Diakitè is still in new contract talks with the Rome club.

The defender's current deal expires next summer and negotiations have failed to find a breakthrough.

"I won't talk about figures," agent Ulisse Savini told LaLazioSiamoNoi.

"We are not accustomed to holding talks via the newspapers. Anyone who wants the player must talk to the club.

"Also, anyone who thinks there is another club behind the problems does not know the transparent way Diakitè and his agents do business."
