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."
