Striker Maxi Gomez insist he is happy at Celta Vigo and played down rumours of a move away from the La Liga club. The 22-year-old joined Celestes in the summer of 2017 and enjoyed an excellent first season, bagging 17 top-flight goals from 36 appearances.
That return was always going to alert some of Europe’s clubs and Premier League West Ham United along with Sevilla were both linked during the summer transfer window.
However, the Uruguay international insists there was never a chance of him leaving and any rumours were just created by the newspapers.
“There is always a lot of talk in the media, it is normal,” Gomez told reporters. “At Christmas last year there was a lot of talk that I would move to China too, but the truth is I am very happy at Celta, here I am progressing, fighting and working hard – I want to continue here.”
