Giovinco agent denies Hammers link

Published Add your comment

Sebastian Giovinco will not be joining West Ham, according to his agent.

The Juventus attacking midfielder is a target of the London club, with Hammers coach Gianfranco Zola showing an interest in taking the 21-year-old on loan, having previously worked with him at Italy Under-21 level.

"Seba (Giovinco) will remain in Turin," said Giovinco's agent Andrea D'Amico. "Everyone knows that Zola has great admiration for Giovinco and it doesn't surprise me that they would like him at West Ham. But the episode of sending him somewhere else to prove his quality is a chapter of the past."

He added: "If Sebastian is at Juve it means that he has the quality of Juve. He is awaiting his moment and he is patient."

Giovinco, who returned to Juve in the summer after a successful loan deal at Empoli, recently signed a two-year contract extension which will keep him in Turin through 2013.
