Espanyol's highly-rated midfielder Pablo Zabaleta says he's happy at the Spanish Liga club.

A long-term target for both Inter and AC Milan, Zabaleta insists: "I am very happy.

"At the beginning, yes, I had problems with the position in which I played. I needed stability. But soon everything has become a dream: a Copa final and another in the UEFA Cup.

"I have been happy at Espanyol since the first day."
