Udinese have ruled out moves for Sulley Muntari and Vincenzo Iaquinta.
Udinese owner Gianpaolo Pozzo has ruled out moves for Sulley Muntari and Vincenzo Iaquinta.
Both players impressed at the World Cup finals with Ghana and Italy respectively.
Bolton and Portsmouth have been linked with Muntari with the player previously expressing an interest in playing in England.
Iaquinta's future has been the subject of intense debate for some time with several top Italian sides casting envious eyes towards him.
Pozzo is keen to keep hold of Udinese's top stars and has no plans to sell either Muntari or Iaquinta.
"I can exclude the possibility of a Muntari sale," said Pozzo.
"As for Iaquinta, there are no valid replacements for him in Italy and it will take a foreign player a year to settle."
