The agent of Palermo midfielder Josip Ilicic has cooled talk of a move to AS Roma.

Roma chief Walter Sabatini is said to be keen on the Slovenia international.

"I haven't spoken to Sabatini for about six months," Amir Ruznic told La Roma 24. "He is obviously aware of Josip as he launched him at Palermo and he appreciates his quality.

"Our relationship is excellent, but it is too soon to talk about a transfer. Everything will have to wait until the end of the season.

"We had a meeting with Palermo about a month ago and we decided that we would talk again once the campaign was over."
