Villa committed to Valencia as vultures circle

Valencia striker David Villa has insisted he wants to see out his contract with the club even though crippling debts make it almost certain he will be sold.

The Spanish international, top scorer at Euro 2008, has long been tracked by Europe's top clubs and Manchester City. And the recent news about the depth of his club's financial troubles had led to increased speculation about his future.

Although it may be out of his hands, the 27-year-old is happy at the Mestalla and that will not be affected should Los Che fail to qualify for the Champions League for next term. At present they are fifth in the table, two points behind Villarreal in the last qualification spot.

Liverpool, Manchester City, Barcelona and Real Madrid, to name just a few, have already been linked. And British newspaper reports on Friday suggested Chelsea have already prepared a £40m deal rubber-stamped by owner Roman Abramovich.

However, the player's agent has previously stated there is no chance he will leave La Liga.

Villa, nicknamed El Guaje (Andalucian for The Kid), told Spanish newspaper AS: "There may be changes to the landscape on a professional level but there won't be in our decisions because I want to stay.

"We all know what a year without Champions League would be like, so we wish to reach fourth spot. Nothing is going through my mind other than finishing in the top four.''

Asked whether he sees himself still at the club in September, Villa, who is contracted to the club until 2014, replied: "I am not looking at September - I am here for the next six years. Unless someone from the club tells me otherwise - and I repeat that this has not happened - I am here for six years.

"(Rumours) do not affect me because, to tell you the truth, I am expecting them - I am not influenced by them.

"I think the best thing for me, given the club has not informed me of anything other than wanting me to see out my six-year contract here, is to forget (the rumours) and concentrate on the sport.

"If something comes, it will be discussed... but now it is a waste of time.''

Villa, tries to distance himself from the club's financial woes and focus only on on-pitch affairs.

"Players try to isolate ourselves from those things,'' he said. "I do my work because, when we talk about issues during the week, the only thing that can be a relief for the players is to play well and win on a Sunday.

"The club always try to stay focused at bad times.''
