Honda: Happy to stay at CSKA Moscow
Keisuke Honda has played down rumours linking him with a move to Liverpool or Manchester City, claiming he is happy at CSKA Moscow.
Premier League pair Liverpool and City are both thought to be keen on signing highly-rated winger Honda this summer.
The 25-year-old insists he is content to stay at CSKA if he receives no offers and that if he was to leave Russia he would prefer a switch to Spain.
"CSKA are playing Champions League football next season so staying is not a bad option," Honda told Sankei Sports.
"However, I do want to test myself at a higher level if the opportunity arises. My preference is still to play Spain."
