Jordan Amavi has dropped a big hint about his future by posting a picture on Twitter of him playing for Aston Villa.

The Frenchman who signed from Nice last summer has four-years left on his Villa contract but relegation to the second tier of English football has prompted interest from across Europe in the 22-year-old.

French outlet L’Equipe previously reported that Premier League club Liverpool were considering a £10.8million swoop for the highly rated youngster.

But Amavi has hinted that his thoughts are concentrated solely on his club as he prepares for pre-season with the Championship club.

Left-back Amavi is a popular figure among Villa supporters as a result of his fine performances at the start of the 2015-16 Premier League season before a serious knee injury cut his season short last November.

 

Manager Roberto Di Matteo will be hoping Amavi chooses to stay at Villa Park as he looks to mount a challenge and gain instant promotion to the Premier League with the former European champions.

As reported by Football Insider, Villa players such as the returning Stan Petrov and new signing Tommy Elphick began pre-season training at Bodymoor Heath as the club prepares for a gruelling championship campaign.
