Ex-West Ham ace Di Canio staying with Swindon amidst Leeds United rumours

Paolo Di Canio has committed his future to Swindon Town despite being linked with the vacant Leeds United position.

The Italian tactician's name has already been associated with the Whites, who sacked Simon Grayson during the week, but he is remaining steadfast on his plans to stay at the County Ground at least until the end of the season.

"Absolutely not this year because I gave my word and my word, for me, is more important than a contract," the former West Ham United star told Sky Sports News.

"Leeds is an amazing name but there is nothing in the story because nobody contacted me but the fact that maybe someone has focused their attention on me makes me very happy because we live for it. But, this doesn't mean I would consider moving on already now.

"Leeds is an amazing club, a fantastic club and every manager would consider going there but at the moment I don't consider to move to a Premier League club because I gave my word to Swindon. I promised something to my fans and until the end of the season for sure, for sure, I will be here to try to give my best and win this league."
