Tottenham target Villa delaying decision on future

The Barcelona star insists that he will not be thinking about a move away from the club until after Spain's Confederations Cup campaign, amid interest from the Premier League
David Villa says he will not be making a decision about his Barcelona future until after Spain's Confederations Cup campaign.

Last month Goal revealed Tottenham have tabled a £10 million bid for the 31-year-old as they look to bolster their attacking options, though a lack of Champions League football could scupper their chances.

In January Goal revealed Spurs' north London rivals Arsenal had made a £10m bid of their own for Villa, but Barcelona rejected the approach despite the player himself reportedly being keen on a move.

And as a summer of speculation beckons, Villa insists he is determined not to make any big decisions on his future until he completes his duties with Spain in the Confederations Cup.

"I have a contract and I have always said that I'm very happy in Barcelona," he told reporters.

"Throughout my career I have always been respectful of my current club. Right now I'm just thinking about doing a good job in Brazil [at the Confederations Cup] and then we will see.

"We will have to analyse many things during the summer, but as of right now I'm not thinking of anything else other than playing football for Spain."

Blaugrana president Sandro Rosell claimed on Thursday that Villa will be staying at Camp Nou, despite limited first-team opportunities and interest from the Premier League.

Villa joined Barcelona in 2010 and has since gone on to make over 100 appearances for the Catalans.
