Poulsen's agent rubbishes Portsmouth link

January 20, 2009

Christian Poulsen's agent has dismissed speculation linking the Juventus midfielder with a move to Portsmouth.

Reports in England claimed Pompey are eager to acquire the 28-year-old in the January transfer market.

However, Poulsen's agent, Joern Bonnesen, denied any contact with the Premier League outfit.

"It's not true," he said. "No one has contacted us. Christian has no intention to leave Turin.

"Of course, It will be up to the the club to decide whether to transfer him, but only then will we take into consideration any offers that arrive."

The Denmark international joined Juve last summer from Primera Liga side Sevilla.

Injury problems have limited Poulsen to only six Serie A starts with Claudio Ranieri's outfit this campaign.
