Malaga winger Isco has reiterated his desire to remain at the Primera Liga club for the foreseeable future.

Isco has insisted he aims to stay in Spain for the forseeable future

In spite of regular denials from both the Spain international and his representatives that an imminent switch is on the cards, and the signing of a new contract in January, speculation continues to link him with Europe's top clubs.

The likes of Real Madrid and Chelsea are said to be admirers of the 20-year-old forward.

Isco has no desire to take on a new challenge, though, with it his intention to continue developing at Malaga - a club that will grace the last-16 of the UEFA Champions League.

He appreciates that his current employers may decide to cash in on his services if a suitable offer is lodged, but maintains that he will not be looking for a transfer.

"My head is here and my future is in the hands of Malaga," Isco told Canal Sur Radio.

"If the club decide to sell me because they need the money, I cannot do anything. I don't have a say there.

"But hopefully I can stay here for many years. That is what I want. I am really enjoying it here."
