The 20-year-old has attracted interest from a number of European clubs.
Newcastle Jets CEO Robbie Middleby has confirmed they have received no formal offers for midfield star Josh Brillante.
The 20-year-old has endured a busy summer after starring for the Australia under-20’s side at the U-20 World Cup in Turkey and then being called up to the senior Socceroos side for the East Asian Cup after impressing coach Holger Osieck.
Brillante is is considered one of the brightest young talents in the country and his eye catching performances at international level have since caught the eye of scouts from Serie A club Lazio, Bundesliga side Schalke and Everton, of the English Premier League.
Speculation soon gathered that a bid had been submitted by one of his European suitors but Middleby denied this in a statement released on Tuesday.
“Josh is a talented young player with a bright future and he’s shown that with his performances in recent months,” Middleby told Football Australia.
“He did extremely well for the Young Socceroos at the Under 20 World Cup and earned a well-deserved call-up to the senior Socceroos’ squad for the East Asian Cup.
“At this stage we haven’t received any formal offers for Josh and he remains a Jets player.”
Brillante, who is still under contract at the Hunter Stadium until the end of the 2014/15 season, holds dual Australian-Italian citizenship and wouldn’t have any trouble acquiring a work permit for a move to Europe.
