Udinese sports chief Pietro Leonardi has slammed Juventus midfielder Antonio Nocerino.

He revealed: "I am no hypocrite. Last year I had formalized his purchase, but he discarded the Fruili destination. So, for as long as I am DG of Udinese, he will not move to Udine.

"Udinese only want players excited to come here."

Nocerino is expected to move to Palermo as part of Juventus' deal for Amauri.
