Catania insist Maxi Lopez is staying with the Sicilians.

Maxi has been linked with Sunderland and Fiorentina in recent weeks.

“Maxi Lopez is a Catania player and he’ll play for us for the entire season,” said sporting director Pietro Lo Monaco.

“You need more than gossip, speculation and rumours to start transfer negotiations – you need money.

“Fiorentina sporting director Pantaleo Corvino has never contacted me so this matter ends here.”
