Palermo: Hernandez not for sale

Palermo have again made it clear that they have no intention of selling Abel Hernandez to Roma.

Giallorossi sporting director Walter Sabatini, formerly of Palermo, is an admirer of the young Uruguayan.

However, President Maurizio Zamparini has underlined that none of his attackers are available for transfer.

"Roma haven't asked us for him," Zamparini noted. "However, even if they did, Hernandez is going nowhere.

"We are happy with our attacking options and nobody in that department will leave."

Hernandez is highly rated by the Rosanero despite a slim scoring record of just 15 goals in 57 appearances.

The South American, 21, joined Palermo in 2009 from Penarol.
