Tottenham-linked Aly Cissokho: I am happy at Aston Villa

The Aston Villa defender has been speaking about his future.

Aston Villa defender Aly Cissokho has remained coy about his future amid links with Tottenham Hotspur - but insists he is happy 'at the moment.'

The 27-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Liverpool, is the subject of interest from Spurs, according to reports that surfaced last night.

Cissokho, however, says he is concentrating on Aston Villa - although he has not ruled anything out.

"At the moment, I’m happy [at Aston Villa]," the Tottenham-linked defender is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"I’ve been here for six months and I’m happy to be playing. I am playing and learning every game and I’m improving in my head and it is good. I hope to continue to play well and we’ll see.

“The first thing is to think about the safety for the club. After that, we can see if we can be in the top 10 or something like that.

“We have a good squad and if we climb up the table there will be less pressure, we’ll see.”

Tottenham already have a number of full-backs on their books, although the form of Kyle Naughton and Danny Rose has been far from pleasing for Mauricio Pochettino so far this Premier League season.
