Villa denies Chelsea, Liverpool claims

Valencia striker David Villa has dismissed talk he wants to join Liverpool or Chelsea.

"I have heard that I am supposed to have said that I would prefer to go to Liverpool to play next season or that I want Chelsea to be my next team," Villa told

"I have not said anything like that. My club insists I am not for sale and, believe me, I am totally focused on the European Championship. As far as I know, nobody from Liverpool has been in touch, but in any case my future is not something I have in my mind at the moment. I do not understand why people put words in my mouth.

"I always say the same thing, nobody from Valencia has told me that I am for sale. In any case, I am not at all worried about that at the moment. My priority, for now, is to play well in Euro 2008."
