The Blues were thought to be monitoring the right-back during the summer transfer window and rumours have surfaced they could make a move in January, with French giants Paris St Germain also thought to be interested.

Swiss defender Lichtsteiner has been dropped by coach Antonio Conte for Juve's last two games to fuel speculation he could be heading for the door.

But his agent and brother Marko Lichtsteiner insists there is no weight to the transfer talk.

He told calciomercato.it: "I don't know where these rumours come from.

"Stephan is happy at Juventus: they are first in the league and we hope they get through the (group) round in the Champions League.

"He wants to stay, he has no intention of leaving Turin and there is no reason to do it.

"He has no problems with (the coach). They are two people who have a strong characters and always want to win.

"If the club has other ideas for Stephan, I don't know."

His agent does not expect Chelsea or PSG to make an offer in January but says if they do 28-year-old Lichtsteiner will deal with the situation when it arises.

He said: "I don't think that Chelsea and PSG will advance offers in January, but if a club were to make a proposal to Juventus and they should accept it, we'll talk and evaluate together what to do."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
