Sampdoria insist striker Nicola Pozzi is not for sale.

Pozzi has been linked with a return to AC Milan and also is wanted by Palermo in swap talks for Massimo Maccarone.

However, Samp chief Doriano Tosi has made it clear to all suitors that the striker will not be sold this month.

For his part, Pozzi is happy at Samp and looking forward to more minutes following Antonio Cassano's departure for Milan.
