Atsu happy to stay at Porto amidst mounting European clubs interest
By Ameenu Shardow
Ghana winger Christian Atsu insists he has no intentions of leaving FC Porto anytime soon.
The 20-year-old has been a subject of serious transfer talk following some explosive displays for both club and country this season.
English club Tottenham Hotspurs are reportedly lining up a bid to reunite Atsu with manager Andres Villas-Boas at White Harte Lane with Chelsea also lurking to pounce.
But the rising talent says he is happy with the Portuguese champions and is even looking to extend his stay at the Dragao.
“I am very happy at Porto because the club is like family to me,” Atsu said.
“To continue at Porto is a dream for me and I hope to finish this year with a contract renewal.
“According to my agent, we are doing well in negotiations and I do not care about the rumours from abroad. My mind is with Porto.”
Atsu spent majority parts of last season on loan at Rio Ave where regular run of first team opportunities has seen him blossom into an increasingly mature player since his return to Porto.
