Mark Bresciano has insisted that he is happy to stay at Palermo for the forthcoming season.

The Australian midfielder has been linked with a move to the Premier League after dropping down the pecking order at Palermo.

Fulham, Newcastle and Manchester City have all been connected with Bresciano in the past, while Blackburn are also thought to be interested as new boss Paul Ince looks to bolster his squad.

Bresciano admits he has always dreamed of playing in England at some stage in his career but maintains that he is currently focused solely on Palermo.

There have been no offers for the 28-year-old as yet and he is ready to try and win his place in Stefano Colantuono's side.

"I don't want to repeat last season, as I'm concentrated on Palermo and I will be happy to stay," said Bresciano.

"I will work and prepare myself like a Palermo player and I have asked my agent not to call me unless there is a concrete approach.

"I want to stay as focused as possible, but if things have to change then I'll evaluate them as they happen.

"One day I would like to play in England because that has always been one of my desires."
