Villa plays down England talk

10 April 2009 09:32
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."
