Espanyol midfielder Javi Marquez has cooled talk of a move to England.

Wigan Athletic and Tottenham are chasing the Spanish youngster.

Nevertheless, the youngster says he is not thinking about leaving Catalonia.

"I'm not aware of interest from Premiership teams and I haven't got any English books - I'm only thinking about the game against Hercules on Sunday, which is very important for the group," he said.

Marquez came through the youth system at Espanyol and says he feels a big affiliation with the Catalan club.

"I'm a homegrown player and I have always liked being here," he said.

"What you have inside is a feeling and all I think about is playing well because thinking about other things would be stupid and it's not worth it."
