Former Premier League target Mark Bresciano has dismissed the chances of him heading to England this summer.
The 30-year-old Australia midfielder will definitely leave Serie A outfit Palermo this summer and is hoping to remain in Europe, despite talk of a move to Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr having already been finalised.
Bresciano said: "Things have been said in the papers that aren't true, I'm still a free agent. I'm just concentrating on the World Cup and hopefully I'll stay in Europe.
"I'd love to stay in Italy, but that may be very hard. I want to still challenge myself, so stay in Europe somewhere and play in a tough league.
"A couple of years ago I was dying to get there (England) just to have a different experience.
"There's other leagues that I'm still interested in and would like to play in. I guess I have to see what clubs are available - anywhere in Europe at a decent club."
