Koke insists that he is happy at Atletico Madrid despite reports linking him with a move away from the club.

Spain midfielder Koke has dismissed the possibility of leaving Atletico Madrid this summer.

After playing a key role in helping Atletico win La Liga, the 22-year-old has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the Spanish capital.

However, coming up through the ranks at the Vicente Calderon has persuaded Koke that his immediate future is with Diego Simeone's side.

"I'm happy here - this is my home, I've been at Atletico since a very young age and I feel very comfortable here," Koke is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.

"I have a long-term contract. It's flattering for big clubs to be interested in you, but I'm really happy here."

Reports on Friday suggested that Manchester United would be willing to activate a £48m release clause in Koke's contract.
