Larsson rules out Premiership return

The 37-year-old is available on a free transfer in January when his contract with Helsingborg expires.

“It’s amazing. I’ve read so many stories linking me with a move to Everton and Aston Villa, but I haven’t spoken to either club or any other club in England,” he wrote in his blog.

“There is absolutely no truth in any of the stories linking me with a transfer to The Premiership.

“The details of talks I’m meant to have had are totally made up. I don’t know where these stories have come from, but they are just untrue.

“Villa and Everton are two great clubs. I have a great deal of respect for David Moyes and, obviously, for Martin O’Neill, who was my manager at Celtic, but that does not mean that I´ve had any contact with either club about a move in January because I haven’t.

“It’s always flattering that people are interested in you and that I could be linked with clubs like those, but I haven´t spoken to any English teams.

“At the moment, I simply don’t know what my plans are or whether I´ll continue playing football or not.

“In an ideal world, if I do continue to play football, it will be in Sweden and not anywhere else.

“Believe me, there is no truth whatsoever in these rumours.”
