Palermo director Giorgio Perinetti claims that the club will discuss the future of players including that of Josip Ilicic only in the summer.

Palermo have revealed that they will decide on the future of playmaker Josip Ilicic only at the end of the season.

Reports in Italy have suggested that the 25-year-old could be sold in the summer if Palermo suffer relegation from Serie A.

"Only once the campaign is over and we know the outcome will we evaluate the various offers," club director Giorgio Perinetti told Roma Giallorossa.

"We know that Palermo have players of value who have personal ambitions, but today we are only thinking about safety and we can't allow our players to be distracted by transfer stories.

"That is why we have put a stop to all negotiations about renewals or transfers. We'll listen to requests and potential bids from the end of May onwards."

Palermo are currently second from bottom in Serie A with 24 points from 30 matches.
