Cagliari President Massimo Cellino insists there is no truth to rumours linking the club with a move for Sampdoria playmaker Antonio Cassano.
The 28-year-old Italy international has been frozen out at Marassi after falling out with Riccardo Garrone who has started proceedings to get his contract rescinded.
Speaking after last night's 3-0 defeat to Bologna in the Coppa Italia, Cellino said: "There is no truth in it.
"I haven't moved from Cagliari this week."
Cassano's agent Beppe Bozzo also dismissed the news as "rubbish."
