The midfielder picked up his first international cap against Iran on Saturday and, although flattered by interest from Bundesliga Hamburg, is happy with The Villans.
"It is always flattering when a team says they are interested in you," explained the young midfielder to Aston Villa's official website.
"Especially someone like Hamburg, who are a big team in Germany.
"But it doesn't help me at the moment because all I am focused on is playing well for Aston Villa."
Hitzlsperger's current contract in England ends soon, but talks with the club are progressing.
"The contract issue does not affect my football anyway, though some people have said that it must because I have not started the last three games."
