Buffon in no rush over new deal

Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon is in no hurry to sign a new deal at the club.

Reports in Turin claimed that Buffon, 34, who is under contract with the Bianconeri until June 2013, would soon start negotiations with Juve regarding a possible contract extension.

However, Buffon told Gazzetta dello Sport: "We are not talking about a renewal right now. The most important thing is concentrating fully on what is happening on the pitch. The rest can sort itself out after without any kinds of problems whatsoever.''

The Italy international has enjoyed a stellar career in Turin since joining the club from Parma in 2001 and this season has proved pivotal in helping Juventus remain unbeaten this season.

The Turin giants lead the Serie A standings and have the best defensive line in the competition with just 13 goals given away in 21 games.
