AZ Alkmaar defender Simon Poulsen has denied knowledge of any interest from Aston Villa after being linked to the Premier League club.
Speculation has surfaced that Villa are monitoring the Denmark international, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
Poulsen, who was substituted in Sunday's 1-0 win over Roda JC with 10 minutes remaining after a below par display, is yet to decide whether he will extend his deal at current Eredivisie leaders AZ.
But the 27-year-old, a left-sider who can play at full-back or in midfield, insists he has not heard anything from Villa.
"I still haven't made a decision," Poulsen told AD over the possibility of extending his AZ contract.
"I also know nothing about Aston Villa's interest in me. I've only heard that from the media.
"My agent will only notify me only if there is something concrete.
"I haven't heard anything after last weekend. I did not play such a good game."
Poulsen admits a move to Villa would be an attractive prospect, adding: "Aston Villa, what can I say? It's a beautiful club."
