Victor Valdes' agent has ruled out a switch to Turkish side Atalyaspor due to the player's wish to remain at Manchester United.

The Turkish media reported comments by Atalyaspor president Gultekin Gencer in which he claimed that Valdes was keen to move to his club this summer.

Valdes recovered from a serious knee injury to make two Premier League appearances last season as he remained behind David de Gea in the Old Trafford pecking order.

"Some people from Turkey called me to negotiate Victor's signing," Valdes' agent Gines Carvajal said to Spanish newspaper AS. "But I've never spoken to the president of that Turkish club.

"Hence, I'm not going to discuss the comments he made regarding Victor. I don't know him.

"We have no intention of speaking to them again because the player does not want to go to Antalyaspor.

"His wish is to continue to play for Manchester United.

"He has one year left on his contract with the club.

"We don't see any just reason to leave the club.

"United is one of the best three or four clubs in the world.

"Victor is enthusiastic to have a place in the team for next season and is ready to give his best to help the team much more."

The 33-year-old Valdes joined the Red Devils in October 2014, three months after leaving Barcelona following 12 years with the first team.

Newly-promoted Turkish Super League club Antalyaspor recently acquired Cameroon forward Samuel Eto'o and are keen to make other big-name signings this summer.
