Villa plays down England talk

Valencia striker David Villa has dismissed fresh speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea after insisting he wants to see out his contract with the Spanish club.
The Spain striker is reported to be a £35million summer transfer target for the Blues, Manchester City and Liverpool.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are also believed to be in the running for the 27-year-old hot-shot.
But after signing a new six-year contract at Valencia earlier in the season, Villa insists he is not looking to move on in the summer.
"Rumours do not affect me because to tell the truth I am expecting them, I am not influenced by them," he told AS.
"The club has not informed me about anything other than the six-year they wanted me to fulfil on my contract. They say just forget it and concentrate on the sport.
"If something comes, it will be discussed but now it is a waste of time. I get tired of answering the same thing.
"If the landscape changes on a professional level, our decisions won't because I want to stay.
"I don't look at September, as I am here for the next six years.
"Unless some from the club says otherwise, and repeat this has not happened, then I am here for six years."
