Stuttgart have dismissed reports over an imminent move to Real Madrid for Germany international Sami Khedira.
Khedira, who is under contract at Stuttgart until June 2011, has been widely linked with a switch to the Bernabeu.
Spanish newspaper Marca reported that Real would unveil the 23-year-old midfielder as their latest signing on Thursday after agreeing a £9million deal with the Bundesliga club.
But Stuttgart's media spokesperson Oliver Schraft insists the reports are false, and that there has been no contact from Jose Mourinho's Spanish giants regarding Khedira.
"There is still no contact between Real Madrid and VfB Stuttgart," Schraft told Deutsche Presseagentur.
"That the transfer will be finalised in the next few hours is something we can clearly rule out."
Khedira's agent Jorg Neblung added: "There will be no big news regarding Sami in the next two to three weeks, as Sami is on holiday over these weeks."
