Barcelona star Seydou Keita has told skysports.com that he is flattered by reported interest from Liverpool in him.

The 31-year-old has over three years left on his current deal at Camp Nou, having been handed a contract extension earlier this year.

But reports have claimed that Liverpool, along with Russian giants Anzhi Makhachkala, are keen to land the Mali international.

Keita admitted it was good to hear about interest from Merseyside, but also insisted he was more than happy with life at Barcelona where he has started more than half of their league games this season.

Great club

"Liverpool is a great club, it is fantastic to hear that they are interested in me, but you know how I feel about Barcelona," he told skysports.com.

"However we are in football and nothing is an absolute, so let's wait until the end of the season.

"I want to play more games than last season, playing regularly in a winning team is very good for the player, but the Premier League is very attractive and exicting for any player.

"My contract runs untill 2014, at the end of the season we will see."
