Porto coach Andres Villas-Boas has committed his future to the club amid constant speculation.

The 33-year-old has seen his reputation skyrocket this season, having guided Porto to the Portuguese title and a Europa League final date with compatriots Braga.

But despite rumours that he would leave in the summer, with Chelsea one of the mooted destinations, he has revealed he intends to remain at the Estadio Dragao.

"My future, as you know, is completely linked to Porto," he said.

"I do not know of any official interest from other clubs."

Porto's president Pinto da Costa insisted his sought-after young manager was happy in his current job and even made a personal pledge to him.

Dream position

"Out of the thousands of times that he has been asked if he would be leaving for another club, he has always responded that he is in his dream position already," he said

"We want to see you happy in this job for many years, and we will provide you with the conditions so that this season is the first of many with the success that we all want."

Meanwhile, Porto striker Hulk has played down speculation regarding his future, with reports suggesting he is a summer target for clubs across Europe.

The Brazil international said: "I am not desperate to leave. I am at a great moment in my career, and have three years' contract left with a great club.

"As the president said, if someone wants me, they'll have to pay, so I will leave it in my agent's hands."

Hulks' buy-out clause is currently set at €100million (£87.4m).
