Iago Aspas: Linked with a move to Swansea but is happy at Celta Vigo

Michael Laudrup has made several shrewd signings since taking charge at the Liberty Stadium and has been linked with a winter swoop for 25-year-old forward Aspas.

Celta coach Paco Herrera stated in December that the club had no intention of letting such a key player leave, and Aspas says he will stay at least until the end of the season.

"I have read many things saying I was going to go in the winter, but they are not true," he explained.

"Already it has been said several times that at least I will be here until June 30, then we'll see what's best for the club and for me."

Aspas, who scored twice in a 3-1 victory over Real Valladolid on Sunday, has come through the ranks at Celta and still has four-and-a-half years remaining on his current deal.

"I have been at Celta 17 years and I am very proud to belong to this club," he said.

"Now I'm very calm because I have a contract until 2017."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
