Eljero Elia, who is in the Holland squad for the World Cup, claims he is not interested in a move away from Hamburg this summer.

The winger has been linked with a move away from the Bundesliga outfit.

But he told the Bild newspaper: "I will be playing for Hamburg next season.

"I am not finished at HSV by a long way."


Juventus had reportedly been lining up a bid for the 23-year-old, but he said he "knows nothing" about any interest from the Serie A club.

Instead, he is concentrating on performing well for Holland in South Africa.

"Being involved in the World Cup makes me the happiest person in the world," he added. "I hope that I get to play in South Africa and then I will show the world what I am capable of."
