Roma defender Philippe Mexes has dismissed the prospect of joining Chelsea or AC Milan this summer. The France international insists his future lies in the Italian capital, despite enduring a disappointing season with the debt-ridden club. "I will remain at Roma," he said. "It always gives me pleasure when a team is interested in me but I am happy at Roma." Mexes is under contract with the Giallorossi for a further two seasons and is looking forward to the new campaign. The 27-year-old made 29 league starts as Roma finished a disappointing sixth in Serie A last term. "Last season was the worst one in my five years at Roma," he said. "I wouldn't want to leave the club like this, I want to prove my worth."
