Published Add your comment

Aston Villa have denied reports that defender Olof Mellberg will quit the club at the end of the season to join Juventus.

The Sweden international has been linked with a move to the Italian giants and the Birmingham Post claim the 30-year-old visited Turin on Tuesday to be given a tour of the Serie A club before undergoing a medical.

But a Villa spokesman said: "Olof going to Turin or anywhere is news to us at Aston Villa."
