Guus Hiddink is not on the verge of returning to club management with Juventus, according to his agent.

The experienced Dutchman was reported to be on the Turin club's shortlist should they decide to dispense with the services of under-pressure incumbent Ciro Ferrara.

However, agent Cees van Niewenhuizen claims there has been no approach from the ailing Serie A side for the current Russia and ex-Real Madrid and Chelsea manager.

"It's not true," he said. "Guus is on holiday in Kenya and will not be back until January 10. He will then decide what to do from then on.

"We have not received any official offers from Juventus. Like I said, he is in Kenya, so who is he going to deal with? The lions?

"I am in France and I am dealing with family life."
