Palermo defender Simon Kjaer has attempted to dampen speculation regarding his future.

The highly-rated Denmark international, 20, has been linked with a move away from Palermo for some time.

A number of top European clubs are understood to be tracking Kjaer's progress, while he hinted last month that he would love to link up with compatriot Daniel Agger at Liverpool.

Fresh reports in the Italian media also suggest that Juventus are keen to push through a swap deal involving Brazilian forward Amauri.

But Kjaer insists he is staying focused on Palermo, who are currently leading the race for fourth place in Serie A and UEFA Champions League qualification.

"My future? I have another three-year contract with Palermo, so to go away from here there would have to be one of those deals where you could not say no," he said.

"I am part of this team and have the chance to play in prestigious competitions with the Rosanero jersey."
