Cape Town - Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan insists he is not interested in moving to the Premier League, as he is enjoying life in the Italian capital.

The Belgium international's stock has been on the rise this season after scoring 12 goals to help the Giallorossi to second in the Serie A standings.

Nainggolan has been linked with league leaders Chelsea, but says he is happy to continue plying his trade at Stadio Olimpico.

"In Rome I'm fine," the 28-year-old told Gazzetta. "My family is happy and even the weather is often good.

"Sometimes you make choices for the money, others for the quality of life, which matters a lot to me. Also, if I went to England, I would have to start from scratch, but I repeat: I am very well in Rome."
