Celta Vigo star Nolito, linked with seven Premier League teams, says he is going nowhere

Celta Vigo, Balaidos Stadium

Aston Villa, Chelsea, Southampton, Tottenham, Stoke, West Brom and Bournemouth are all interested in the player.

In recent weeks La Liga experts have been massively impressed by the performances of Celta Vigo. The club currently sit second in the Spanish top-flight, sandwiched between Real Madrid and Barcelona but only separated by goal difference.

One of the big reasons for their success has been the form of Spanish attacker Nolito.

He has scored six goals in eight La Liga appearances this term and that has led him to being linked with several teams across Europe - including some in England. In fact, it is more like many in England.

It was reported by El Periodico Mediterraneo over the weekend that Aston Villa, Chelsea, Southampton, Tottenham, Stoke, West Brom and Bournemouth all had scouts at Celta's most recent match to check out the former Barcelona youngster in action.

But Nolito, who has also been linked with a move back to the Nou Camp, has told the press in Spain he will not be leaving the club this season. He is quoted by Goal as saying:

"God will decide my future. I'm not leaving in January. I'm happy in Vigo."

That news will of course be a bitter blow to Aston Villa, Chelsea, Southampton, Tottenham, Stoke, West Brom and Bournemouth - all of whom would be likely to pay out on the player.

Villa and West Brom need attacking reinforcements, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham are always on the look out for top young talent. Meanwhile Stoke and Southampton are hoping to establish themselves further up the Premier League ladder whilst Bournemouth have been ravaged by injury.

But the Spanish international does not look like heading anywhere near the Premier League just yet.
