Sorrentino move still on hold

Chievo Verona insist that they have yet to agree a fee with Palermo over Stefano Sorrentino.

The goalkeeper has been targeted by the Rosanero as a replacement for Salvatore Sirigu after his sale to Paris Saint-Germain.

Palermo sporting director Sean Sogliano has stated that a new custodian will arrive this week, but the Verona minnows have put the brakes on a Sorrentino exit.

"There is nothing new to report," Chievo sporting director Giovanni Sartori told Rete Rete 24 on Tuesday.

"There is no meeting planned with any Palermo officials either.

"They could pick up the phone and talk, but no appointment has been set up between the two clubs."

While Chievo are ready to let the custodian move to the Stadio Barbera, there is still a difference between offer and demand.

The Flying Donkeys want €4m for the 'keeper, but Palermo chief Maurizio Zamparini is currently bidding no higher than €2.5m.
