Germany midfielder Sami Khedira has denied reports that he has already agreed a transfer from Stuttgart to Real Madrid.

Khedira is in demand after impressing during Germany's run to the World Cup semi-finals and Marca reported last week that he had been spotted in Madrid and that a deal had been done.

While Jose Mourinho has since admitted he is keen on signing the player, Khedira insists there is no agreement and that he will only decide on where his future lies when he returns from holiday.

"There is no agreement with Real," the 23-year-old told kicker magazine. "No decision has been made about what I'm going to do. We will sit down and have further discussions when I return from my holidays."

Khedira's contract expires at the end of the season and the midfielder says he has had an "honest and open discussion" about his future with coach Christian Gross.
