Spanish La Liga outfit Deportivo La Coruna's interest in Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Thulani Serero has been dismissed.

The 27-year-old attacking midfielder was linked with Deportivo and Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem by Dutch publication Telegraaf this week.

However, La Coruna-based publication, El Desmarque, has moved swiftly to dismiss Deportivo's interest in Serero, who is set to become a free agent at the end of this month.

The former Ajax Cape Town playmaker is not an option for the 1999/00 Spanish La Liga champions ahead of the upcoming Transfer Window, according to the publication.

It is said that Deportivo are unlikely to sign another midfielder as they are close to completing the signing of Guilherme dos Santos from Italian club Udinese on a permanent deal.

"With Pedro Mosquera, Celso Borges and Álex Bergantiños in the squad and about to close the signing of Guilherme dos Santos, the Dépor are well covered in the midfield and will only increase the competition in that department with a player of greater projection," a statement read on El Desmarque website.
