Villa and Silva vow to remain with Valencia

David Villa has confirmed he intends to stay with Valencia after his Euro 2008 scoring feats for Spain - even though the club have received offers for him.

Villa has been linked with clubs including Chelsea and Barcelona but is eager to stay with Valencia, and the club have stressed he is not for sale.

The 26-year-old striker's four goals for Spain won him the Golden Boot and propelled Spain to the Euro 2008 final, which they won without the injured Villa.

Villa told Spanish sport newspaper AS: 'I am happy here and I hope to continue for many years. I hope I can continue for many years, including more than I have signed for.

'I'm under contract and I'm very happy at Valencia.'

Villa's international team-mate David Silva, 22, has also attracted the interest of a host of clubs but also intends to stay with Valencia.

Club president Agustin Morera has warned off any club considering a raid on the Mestalla.

'If we had wanted to transfer them (Villa and Silva) like other players it wasn't that it didn't happen because of a lack of offers,' he said. 'Last year was the same as now, we have offers on the table for them.

'But our interest is that they stay, that is our hope as well as to have a very great team.'
