Ashley Cole is settled at Roma and is not interested in making a surprise Premier League return with Crystal Palace, according to his management company.
The former Arsenal and Chelsea left-back has been linked with a move to Selhurst Park just over five months after he left England to move to Serie A.
But the Palace rumours have been firmly dismissed by David Manasseh, managing director of Stellar Group, who represent the 33-year-old.
"Ashley is loving life in Italy and in Rome. He has never been happier," Manasseh is quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard.
"Whoever has given this information out is a disgrace because all it does is give fans of a football club false hope.
"Ashley is concentrating on trying to win trophies in Italy and, in particular, Serie A this season. Nothing else."
Cole has made eight Serie A appearances for Roma, who trail leaders Juventus by a point.
