Villa a ´key player´, says Iniesta

28 December 2012 03:48

Barcelona star Andres Iniesta has called for his club to keep hold of 'key player' David Villa in the January transfer window.

The Spain international has been linked with a move to the English Premier League at the turn of 2013, with Chelsea mentioned as a possible destination for the ex-Valencia star.

However, Iniesta believes that Villa is important to Barca's chances of succeeding this season and hopes he remains at Camp Nou.

"I don't know if that's a possibility," he told reporters when asked about the sale of Villa in January.

"I don't think (it will happen). Personally I wouldn't like it, because Villa is a key player."

Barca sit top of La Liga having forged an intimidating 16-point lead over their perennial rivals Real Madrid.

And despite their dominance, Villa has been unable to break into the first-team and has been limited to appearances off the bench since returning from injury at the start of the campaign.
