Hazard: I am committed to Lille

In-demand midfielder Eden Hazard claims he is happy to stay at Lille, despite the attention being paid to him by some of Europe's elite.

Hazard's performances in Ligue 1 this season have seen him linked with a move to Arsenal, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid, but the Belgian winger claims that he does not listen to transfer gossip.

"I've heard 'Eden goes here, Eden goes there' for the last two years, but I'm still in Lille and I've not budged," he told L'Equipe."It gives me pleasure, but I don't pay it attention.

"I have never been contacted. How would I choose my future club? They would be sporting reasons. A club that plays good football, not kick and rush for a tall centre-forward. "But if I had the desire to join a big club I would have left already. I am under contract until 2014 and am fine at Lille."

The 20-year-old will only talk about his future in the summer, but for the moment remains fully focused on bringing home the French title.

"I have a career strategy. I am not looking anywhere else. I am completely committed to Lille,'' he added. ''There are three months remaining to get a trophy, then we will talk."
