Arsenal boss Wenger delighted with Villa comments

Villa revealed he fancied a move to the Barclays Premier League and said the attractive style of play at the Emirates Stadium made Arsenal his preferred destination - despite long-running interest from Chelsea.

Flattered Arsenal boss Wenger admitted: "He (David Villa) has said some very complimentary things about us which we take as a big honour.

"I rate him highly as a player but I will not make concrete investigations for anyone at the moment."
