Deportivo goalkeeper Fabricio linked with Premier League move

Deportivo goalkeeper Fabricio has been linked with a summer move to the English Premier League, but the 27-year-old insists he's staying put.

Deportivo La Coruña goalkeeper Fabricio has been one of the bright spots for an otherwise inconsistent Galician side this season and the 27-year-old has reportedly started generating interest from several English Premier League clubs.

According to MARCA, a host of English clubs have expressed interest in the Spanish shot stopper who has made his name as one of the top goalkeepers in La Liga this season.

While the report does not specifically state any particular names or details, Fabricio's performances have not gone unnoticed and with two years remaining on his current contract, clubs are said to be lining up to tempt the Las Palmas native away from El Riazor.

However, despite the allure of playing in the Premier League and the substantial pay-raise that comes with it, Fabricio held a press conference on Wednesday to refute the rumours and insists that he sees himself staying with Depor for '35 more years.'

"I'm very happy here, I assure you," he said. "This is my home and if we beat the drop, I'll negotiate my renewal an hour after. I hope I can stay here for 35 more years. Now's not the time to think about individual aspects when we're fighting for our lives."

Yet, Deportivo may be keen to cash in on the Spaniard while the interest is hot, as they are in desperate need of balancing the books and paying off their outstanding debts.

Fabricio is one of the top goalkeepers in La Liga this season, starting 19 games and allowing just 23 goals for an average of 1.21 goals allowed per game for a side fighting relegation.
