Man Utd defender Victor Lindelof has been linked with a move away from the club in the summer transfer window.

Victor Lindelof insists he is still very happy at Manchester United and does not have any problems with staying at the club for the foreseeable future.

The Sweden international has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford in recent years but has remained a valuable squad player under Erik ten Hag. Lindelof has made 28 appearances in all competitions this season and has proven himself as a worthy replacement amid their ongoing defensive crisis.

Lindelof has had to deal with a reduced role when everyone else has been fully fit, which has led to continued speculation surrounding his future at the club. That didn't stop United triggering a one-year extension in his contract back in January, which ties him to the club until the end of the 2024-25 campaign.

The 29-year-old insists he is still very happy at United and dismissed the rumours of a potential move to the Saudi Pro League.

"I feel good at the club and have been at Manchester United for many, many years," he told reporters while away on international duty. "We extended my contract by a year, I feel good, and I see no problem with staying and continuing to represent the club. It's a club I really enjoy playing for."

Quizzed on the prospect of a move to Saudi Arabia, the experienced defender added: "I haven't actually thought about it. Maybe I don't really feel like I'm there in my career, that I want to get down to moving away. I feel that I want to stay in Europe and play football at that level."
