Livorno deny Givet deal

Livorno have released a statement denying reports of a deal for Blackburn defender Gael Givet.

The rumours emerged that the 31-year-old Frenchman was set for a medical with the newly-promoted Serie A side.

“In reference to negotiations for the possible transfer to the Amaranto of Gael Givet, AS Livorno Calcio point out that no financial agreement has been reached with the French player’s club,” read a statement.

Givet’s contract with Blackburn Rovers is set to expire in June 2014.

It is not clear if the deal will now collapse completely, negotiations are set to continue or Livorno are prepared to wait until Givet becomes a free agent next summer.
