Reported Premier League target Simon Kjaer has further rebuffed claims he could be moving to England by saying he is happy to stay at Palermo.
The Danish centre-back is said to have caught the eye of several European clubs, in particular three of the Premier League's 'top four' with Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool believed to be tracking the progress of the 20-year-old.
However Kjaer has snubbed a future move away from the Rosanero, despite fellow Serie A club Juventus also showing an interest, saying he is happy to stay put and does not consider himself a "fourth or fifth choice" player.
"Manchester United and Juventus? I'm flattered but I love Palermo," he told Italian sports newspaper Tuttosport.
"Here I'm fine, I like the city, the people, the way in which we live.
"I live in Mondello, the sea is wonderful, my girlfriend would not move from here.
"Also I have no intention of going to a team that consider me the fourth or fifth choice."
