Bacinovic: Happy where he is
Palermo midfielder Armin Bacinovic has played down reports linking him with a move to England.
The Slovenia international is reported to be attracting interest from a number of clubs, including Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton.
His rise to prominence has been rapid, with Palermo having only snapped him up from Maribor in August 2010.
The 21-year-old has gone on to shine in Serie A this season, leading to suggestions that his stay in Italy could be a short one.
Bacinovic is refusing to read too much into the rumours, though, and claims he hopes to pen a new deal with Palermo in the near future.
"The interest from English clubs? A move does not interest me," he told Giornale di Sicilia.
"I've only played 20 matches in Serie A and I don't think I need to change teams.
"I am interested in doing well for Palermo. I want to stay here for many years.
"I know my agent will soon ask for a salary increase, but that is not a problem. I am sure it will happen automatically when I deserve it.
"Meanwhile, we have to try and get fourth place. We can do it and it has always been a dream of mine to play in the Champions League."
