The agent of Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo has rubbished reports the Brazilian is angling for a move to England.

Melo has failed to make an impact at Juve since his arrival from Fiorentina and been jeered by his own fans.

It was reported yesterday that Melo had made contact with his former Viola teammate Adrian Mutu about life in England, where the Romanian had experience with Chelsea.

Asked about the news, Melo's agent Emiliano Froldi told TMW: "Felipe has never sought Mutu and never asked to leave from Turin for the Premier League. The news is completely baseless."
