Aston Villa boss Dean Smith has responded to reports linking Ezri Konsa to Liverpool.

The English centre-back is being linked with a move to Anfield, with a summer transfer a possibility.

However, Villa do not want to lose Konsa, and manager Smith responded to the rumours when he spoke with reporters.

He said: "Everybody can see that we're having a good season so far and when teams have good seasons players get linked with everybody.

"He's one of our players who has been consistent this season. It's his first proper Premier League season, he's cut out mistakes, he's been a consistent performer for us and playing to a level where I know he can.

"But there's also certainly room for improvement in him. He's aware of that and is enjoying himself at the moment, so he certainly won't be distracted by any links."
