Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke has revealed that he wants to stay at the club for the long term, reports The Daily Star. 

The 22-year-old has played a key role in his club's season, with Atletico having already booked their place in the Champions League quarter final and challenging for the La Liga title. 

This has led to some of the major clubs in Europe having been linked with his services, with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool all reportedly interested

The player has a buyout clause worth £16 million, however it now appears unlikely that the likes of Manchester United will bring him to the Premier League this summer. 

Speaking to reporters, the Spaniard said: "Maybe, why not? I have a long contract and I want to see it through because Atleti is my home," Koke said.

"We're doing big things as a team in a very nice project and hopefully I can be here for many years.

"The team is making history and hopefully it lasts many years because what we are achieving is very good."

This will come as a blow to the Premier League trio who could all be in the market for new signings in the summer. 

It remains to be seen as to whether the Premier League's elite clubs do step up their interest in the star. For now though, the trio will turn their attention to this weekend's Premier League schedule. 

Manchester United and Liverpool will go head-to-head at Old Trafford, meanwhile Chelsea will look to continue their fine form as they take on Aston Villa at Villa Park.
