Sevilla pair Badé & Isaac speak out on futures with the club

Two high-profile members of the first-team setup at La Liga outfit Sevilla have today spoken out over their plans for the future.

First up comes Loïc Badé.

Amid a stellar campaign to date at the heart of Sevilla’s backline, stopper Badé has been routinely linked with a move away from Andalusia, amid interest, most notably, on the part of Premier League outfit Tottenham Hotspur.

Speaking in an interview with Estadio Deportivo this week, the subject of the rampant speculation surrounding his name was in turn inevitably put to the Frenchman himself.

And though he admitted to being flattered by links with a club of the stature of Tottenham, Badé was also keen to reiterate his ‘happiness’ at Sevilla:

“There is a small satisfaction for me. When a big club like Tottenham is interested, it’s because you do good things. But on the other hand, there’s something that tells you calm, you have to work and concentrate on the games.

“I try to work and I try to concentrate on the matches. Then it’s football, sometimes there are teams that are interested, but we work. I’m very happy here (at Sevilla).”

Also on the agenda at the The Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán at present, of course, is the future of Isaac Romero.

Frontman Isaac has proven himself something of a revelation, since being afforded a permanent spot in boss Quique’s first-team squad in Seville last month.

Afforded eight appearances to date, the 23-year-old has racked up five goals, enough to pique the attentions of Spanish national team head coach Luis de la Fuente.

During an exchange with Movistar Plus (as cited by Mundo Deportivo) earlier today, Isaac, too, was therefore asked for the latest on his future.

This comes amid ongoing negotiations between the attacker’s agent, and Sevilla brass, over the terms of a new contract.

Isaac, though, remains in the dark when it comes to the details of the talks, adamant that all he wants is to continue plying his trade for the Nervionenses ‘for many more years’:

“Personally, I hardly know anything. My agents will be in charge of talking to the club and reaching an agreement so that I can continue defending this crest for many more years.”
