Griezmann once again denies PSG links

Real Sociedad striker Antoine Griezmann has again moved to quash reports that he is set to join Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

Antoine Griezmann has become hot property in Europe after scoring regularly at home and abroad.
Antoine Griezmann has scored 16 goals in 31 Primera Division appearances this season.

• Johnson: PSG stumble

Griezmann, 23, took to Twitter last month to deny rumours in the Spanish press that suggested he had already agreed a move to the French capital.

The France international, who is under contract until 2016, has caught the eye in Spain this season by scoring 16 league goals for sixth-placed Sociedad.

Despite the repeated links to a summer move, Griezmann said on Sunday he was concentrating on helping his current club secure a place in next season’s Europa League instead.

"I have no idea about it," Griezmann told French television show Canal Football Club. "I've read articles which said that I’d said yes to PSG but there's been no contact and no agreement.

"I want to finish my season with Real -- to try to get a good place in the league to get into Europe.

"When a big club is interested in you it’s always nice. But I’m thinking about my club and after that we’ll see what can happen."

Griezmann also revealed that as a teenager he was rejected by Auxerre, Lyon, Montpellier, Saint-Etienne and Sochaux for being too small.

Real Sociedad took him into their academy, and earlier this season he scored a spectacular volley in a Champions League qualifier against Lyon, the club he supported as a boy.

Griezmann earned his first cap for France in their 2-0 friendly win over the Netherlands in March.
