Terrence Romeo isn’t going anywhere.

The GlobalPort star made this assurance during the recently concluded PBA Press Corps Awards night last Thursday.

Romeo apparently had a heart-to-heart talk with team owner Mikee Romero wherein the 25-year old native of Imus, Cavite reaffirmed his commitment to the team.

“Actually, kausap ko si boss Mikee. Hindi talaga totoo yun, said Romeo on earlier reports that he had requested management to trade him to another team.

“Ang importante, alam ko at ni boss Mikee kung gaano ko ka-mahal yung GlobalPort. Kaya hangga’t nasa GlobalPort ako, ibibigay ko yung best ko para mapuntahan namin yung goal namin,” he added.

Romeo, who is listed as doubtful for the upcoming Philippine Cup due to a nagging knee injury, bagged his 3rd scoring title with an average of 23.3 points in Season 42.

The gunner out of FEU however wants nothing more than to see his team return to the final four after falling short against Alaska during the 2015 Philippine Cup.

“Ang igo-goal ko ngayon yung team award. Kailangan at least makapasok kami ng semis. Hindi kami yung team na expected na kaagad ng mga tao na, ‘Ah, ito, ‘matic ‘to.’ Kami yung team na kailangan talaga namin na gumawa ng sarili naming way papunta dun. Hindi ganun kadali,” Romeo said.
