Valencia striker Villa happy he resisted Chelsea, Man Utd interest
The 27-year-old Spain international has long been linked with a move away from the Mestalla, with speculation rife earlier this summer that he would be sold to ease the club's financial worries.
He has remained tight-lipped on the topic of his future over the summer but has broken his silence to reveal he never considered playing for another club against Valencia's wishes.
"I could not spend all summer refuting things, so I wanted to be quiet," he said.
"I depended on the decision of the club. They decided for me to stay and I am glad.
"I was told I should leave Valencia for the good of the club. Soon after that everything changed and from that moment on I never saw myself out of here.
"There is no train missed because all I have achieved is because of Valencia and the Spain national team so I do not think any train has passed."
