Palermo sports chief Walter Sabatini has denied that Palermo are interested in signing Catania midfielder Marco Biagianti.

The 26-year-old has been at the Sicilian club for three years making 90 appearances but Sabatini admits that there are 'no negotiations' for the midfielder.

"Purchase of Biagianti? There are no negotiations for him," admitted Sabatini.

"It is easier for us to sign a Brazilian than the Catania midfielder. In recent days I met Pietro Lo Monaco (Catania CEO) and all we did was talk. An exchange of appreciation of our teams, but nothing more."
