French defender ‘not thinking’ about Liverpool rumours

Mark Scott
Jordan Amavi: Linked with Liverpool

Jordan Amavi has said he is not entertaining talk of a potential move to Liverpool and is happy with his current club Aston Villa.

The Reds and Marseille were both linked with the full-back in the summer and although he is focused on helping the Midlands club get back up the table, he did rule out a transfer to the latter option.

The 22-year-old Frenchman told French media outlet SoFoot: “For now, I’m at Aston Villa, they rely on me.

“I will do my best to make up. Later, we will see later. I do not think I’ll go to Marseille, I’m at Aston Villa and I do not think about leaving.”

“Personally, I feel well at Aston Villa, the atmosphere in the group is good, the facilities are beautiful, the city is beautiful too. Despite the fact that we’re in D2 (Championship), I am at Aston Villa.

“The summer transfer window, I told my agent I wanted to stay, and leaders have asked my opinion too. If clubs were positioned, I do not know if Villa would have let me go, but I had decided to stay.

“Today, I play, I try to get back to my best.”
