Sampdoria midfielder Angelo Palombo has played down talk of a return for Inter Milan striker Antonio Cassano.

Cassano has been linked with a possible move back to Marassi after his falling out with Inter boss Andrea Stramaccioni recently.

"Cassano? I don't know," the 31-year-old commented. "These are evaluations that need to be made by the club.

"The directors here will know what is in the best interests of Sampdoria."
