Gabriel Agbonlahor has boosted Aston Villa by confirming that he has 'no reason' to leave the club for pastures new.
The striker, who has been with Villa for his entire career to date after making his debut seven years ago, has been linked with moves away from Villa Park on several occasions.
However, despite Villa failing to pick up any silverware during his time at the club and with Paul Lambert's men struggling to avoid relegation from the Premier League this season, Agbonlahor is adamant that he does not regret staying put.
He said: "Do I regret being a one-club player? I think, for me, I have always enjoyed playing my football here at Villa so it's hard for me to say that.
"Players who have left the club have had their reasons for leaving.
"For me I've always enjoyed playing my football, maybe other than the one season where I wasn't playing as much as I wanted to, which was disappointing.
"Apart from that, I have enjoyed my football and when that is the case you have no reason to look elsewhere.
"If that changed, then you would have to obviously look elsewhere. But if I'm in the team and enjoying my football, there is no reason to do that.
"The Premier League is the only place you want to be playing. That is why, if I'm asked if I am thinking about relegation, the answer is I'm not.
"I am thinking about helping the team to get out of where we are now. This is the league you want to be playing in, the best league in the world. There's no reason I'd want to leave it."
