“I'm happy," he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“Everyone likes to be courted, but I have another four years on my contract with Torino.
“I want to succeed and prove my worth: I don't like it when people say that I'm just a good player.
“I'm worth more than that. Among the Italian defenders, Chiellini aside, I don't see anyone else better than me or more determined than I am.
“I'm honoured to wear the Granata shirt and spit blood for it until the last day I wear it."
