Villarreal midfielder Cazorla unsure if he'll play on next season

Villarreal midfielder Santi Cazorla says he's unsure of plans of playing next season.

Now 35, the former Arsenal star is on a season-long deal with the Yellow Submarine and his form has the veteran a candidate for Spain's Euros squad.

Cazorla told Marca: "I have no long-term plans, let alone being 35 years old. I will end the season and see how the body reacts because every day the sensations are different.

"I always said that I would come back here to play at the best level and when I realise I am not even 80% I will take a step back and leave room for young people. Today I am happy, but the age is known and the injury remains and every time it is felt more and more.

"I will decide in the summer."
