Serie A side Palermo have rejected an offer from an unnamed Premiership outfit for key midfielder Josip Ilicic.
“I can confirm that Palermo received at least one bid from a Premier League club for Josip,” agent Amir Ruznic told Zurnal24.
“However, President Maurizio Zamparini immediately turned it down.
“I can’t tell you the name of the team who had a go at signing Ilicic, but they are a medium-to-high club in the Division.”
The 24-year-old Slovenian international scored two goals in 33 League games for the Rosanero in the 2011-12 campaign.
He joined the Italian outfit from Maribor in the summer of 2010.
