Patrick van Aanholt says that he is "happy" at Crystal Palace amid speculation earlier this summer that he is wanted by Italian champions Juventus.

Crystal Palace left-back Patrick van Aanholt has admitted that it is "good" to be linked with Juventus, but has played down talk of a move away from Selhurst Park.

The 27-year-old emerged as a surprise rumoured target for the Italian champions at the start of the transfer window due to concerns over Alex Sandro's future at the Allianz Stadium.

Nothing came of the media speculation, however, and Van Aanholt - who joined Palace from Sunderland for £9m in January last year - has declared himself "happy" with life in South London.

"It is always good to be linked with big clubs like Juventus. It is a sign that I am in a good way," he told Sky Sports News. "I am feeling good and I want to keep doing that, but I am a Palace player and I am looking forward to the season.

"I am happy. We have got a great squad, my family lives in London, my kids go to school here. It is just a rumour and unless there is really people coming in then I will never worry about it."

Van Aanholt scored five goals in 28 Premier League appearances for the Eagles last season.
