Scuffet: Udinese right place to continue developing

21 July 2014 16:11

Udinese goalkeeper Simone Scuffet had no hesitation in rejecting a move elsewhere as he believes the club will help him develop.

The teenager rose to prominence last season, featuring 16 times for Udinese in Serie A and his form saw many consider him a possibility for Italy's FIFA World Cup squad.

As it was the 18-year-old was not selected by Cesare Prandelli for the tournament in Brazil but Scuffet has still been tipped to become Gianluigi Buffon's long-term successor.

Indeed Scuffet has reportedly attracted interest from a host of teams, most recently from Spanish champions Atletico Madrid who are keen to add to their goalkeeping options after Thibaut Courtois returned to Chelsea after a three-year loan.

However, he has snubbed all overtures and stated his belief that Udinese is the right place for him to continue improving as a player.

"I'm convinced Udinese is the right place for me to grow," he said at a press conference.

"I listened to all the advice and then I took my decision, which I fully believe [is the right one].

"The environment [at Udinese] is great, I love these colours."

Scuffet recently penned a new contract at Udinese that will see him remain with the club until 2019.
