Feghouli delays linking with Algeria

2 January 2013 21:16

Sofiane Feghouli is keen to conclude contract talks with Valencia before the African Cup of Nations kicks off.

The winger has been linked with a host of clubs, including Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain, but he and Valencia are still holding negotiations over a deal which would see him remain at the Mestalla until 2016.

The 23-year-old has been forced to delay meeting up with his Algeria team-mates ahead of the continental tournament in South Africa, and he excused being late to arrive as a necessity to secure his long-term future.

"I am in a dilemma," Feghouli told reporters in Algeria.

"I have not extended my contract with Valencia and if I go before (it's done) then I'd run the risk of reaching South Africa feeling psychologically bad about leaving my future in the air.

"My desire is to join the team a few days late, but at my physical and psychological peak, which means I will be able to give everything for my country as I have done every time I have played.

"I'm looking forward to playing in the African Cup of Nations."
