Reported Liverpool target Aly Cissokho is happy at Valencia despite having "possibilities" to leave the cash-stricken La Liga club.

Cissokho, 25, signed a four-year contract at La Mestalla only last summer after completing a move from Lyon, but with Valencia aiming to reduce their debts, they could be tempted to sell.

Liverpool have been frequently linked with the France international as have a number of Russian Premier League clubs.

But the former Porto full-back has no plans to move as he seeks to impress new Valencia coach Miroslav Djukic, who last month took over from Ernesto Valverde, himself a replacement for Mauricio Pellegrino in December.

Cissokho said: "Every player at the club is subject to speculation given the financial situation. I've had possibilities, that's true, but I'm happy here. I played a lot under Pellegrino, a little less under Valverde, but I played in big games in both the Champions League and La Liga."
