Newcastle winger Jonas Gutierrez is not heading to Olympiakos, according to his agent, while Panathinaikos have rejected reports linking them with Fabricio Coloccini.
Greek sports daily SportDay carried an article with comments from Gutierrez in which he claimed he had been told the Greek champions wanted to buy him.
The Argentina international failed to meet expectations on Tyneside following his move from Real Mallorca last summer, but started the Magpies' first game since being relegated to the Championship on Saturday as they drew 1-1 at West Brom.
Gutierrez's representative Pedro Bravo Jimenez dismissed the quotes attributed to his client, saying: "Nobody from Olympiakos or any other club from Greece has been in touch with me about the player.
"There is no enquiry or offer. These reports are not true."
Meanwhile, Panathinaikos also dismissed reports that they were set to launch a bid for Gutierrez's countryman and Newcastle team-mate Coloccini.
"There is absolutely nothing in that at all," a Panathinaikos press spokesperson said.
"At the moment Panathinaikos is not in the market for any new players, it's as simple as that."
