Leeds United’s Marco Silvestri has, via a Tweet, confirmed he plans to be at Elland Road next season amid rumours of his departure.

Silvestri has divided fans opinions for much of the season with many hoping the club will still offload the 25 year-old – but the keeper looks to have his heart set on staying.

The former Italy Under-20 and Under-21 played all but one of the Whites League games this season conceding 57 goals in 45 games.

In his 48 games in all competitions, the shot-stopper managed to keep just nine clean sheets.

Having started his career in his home country with Modena, Silvestri then went on to play for Chievo, Reggiana, Padova, and Cagliari before being snapped up by Leeds.

Signing for the Whites in the summer of 2014 for a fee of £400,000, Silvestri still has two years left on his contract.

Since arriving at Elland Road the Italian has been Leeds’ Number One keeper and has played over 80 times for the club.

Silvestri seems to still be enjoying his time in Yorkshire and last year said that “life in Leeds is good. Me and my wife enjoy it here.”
