Valencia defender Aly Cissokho has welcomed renewed talk of a move to Liverpool, but says no transfer talks have been held.

The France international has been regularly linked with a switch to England ever since he burst onto the European scene at Porto.

He has kept Premier League suitors waiting - taking in a three-year stint at Lyon before moving to Spain in 2012.

There is, however, every chance that a transfer could be put in place this summer, with financial difficulties at Valencia leaving them open to offers for their prized assets.

Cissokho admits he would welcome the opportunity to experience life at Anfield, but is reluctant to speculate on where his future will lie until a formal approach is made.

The 25-year-old full-back said: "I will not believe that I am going anywhere until I am in Liverpool and having a medical.

"Liverpool is such a great club, so to be linked with them is fantastic. But there is nothing concrete from anyone at the moment.

"If there is an opportunity to join such a club, I will take it. Valencia are a great club, in a great city, but Liverpool are a legendary club."
