Tello has made just two starts in La Liga this season and had been tipped to make a short term move away from the Nou Camp in order to gain more first team experience, with both Liverpool and fellow Spanish side Valencia said to be interested.
Barcelona had been keen to keep a hold of the player as they see him as a genuine prospect, though Tello could not rule anything out come June, when he will again reassess his options.
“I will definitely stay at Barcelona until June, then we’ll see in the summer”, he said following his side’s 2-0 Copa Del Rey victory over Getafe, in which he started.
Tello’s agent had also denied that he would be leaving toward the back end of last year, however, Tello is eager to play more and revealed his summer plans last year.
“I am young and I want to play”, he had said.
“If I do not succeed at Barcelona, I will assess my situation at the end of the season.”
