Didier Drogba has laughed off reports linking him with a move to Aston Villa.
Social media went into overdrive when Villa owner Tony Xia claimed the Championship club were closing in on a “world class” striker.
Chelsea great Drogba emerged as a possible arrival, given he worked under Villa boss Roberto Di Matteo at Stamford Bridge, with the pair winning the 2012 Champions League.
But the 38-year-old Montreal Impact striker dismissed the speculation, using Twitter to apparently distance himself from any possible move.
