A happy Sulley Muntari says he will remain with AC Milan and complete his contract which expires in June 2016.

The 30-year-old midfielder is in the first of a two-year contract he renewed with the Filipo Inzaghi side after the 2014 World Cup.

Muntari’s inconsistent form this season had let to speculations that he could be headed for the exit at the end of the 2014/15 season but the Ghanaian international has moved to quell that in a recent interview.

“I’m happy in Milan and I will stay here for another season,” Muntari told Italian reporters.

“Being in the team’s official line-up is my first aim for now and I will do my best to improve my performance and to convince my coach that I deserve a permanent place in the team.”

Muntari, who initially joined from rivals Inter on loan in January 2012, just recovered from an injury suffered at the Milan training grounds.
