Partizan Belgrade have denied that a deal has been done between themselves and Chelsea for teenage striker Lazar Markovic, although they hinted that he could leave next summer.

The 18-year-old is already a full Serbian international and has attracted the attention of some of the top clubs around Europe.

The Blues are said to be leading the race for his signature, but Partizan are adamant that Markovic is going nowhere.

“We would like to announce that all information saying Lazar Markovic has been sold is untrue,” Partizan spokesman Nenad Danilovic told Serbian news agency Tanjug.

“During the winter, Partizan rejected all offers that came for Markovic and he will stay with us at least for one year more.”
