Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu admits he would love to reunite with David Villa.

The Barcelona striker is being linked with a January move to Stamford Bridge and although the Catalan giants say they have no intention of offloading him, Romeu would be delighted if the Spain international made his way to Southwest London.

"I don't know what Villa's situation is, but if a great player like him comes, the record goalscorer with the national team, he would be welcomed and we would be happy," Romeu told Spanish radio show Esports Cope.
