[Aston Villa have signed Anwar El Ghazi on a permanent basis from Lille after his successful loan spell] I really enjoy it here. I love the club and I love the fans. This club is amazing and I will be very happy if I can stay here. We have to figure it out with Lille but hopefully everything goes well so that I can stay here

[Ziyech offered brick wall warning ahead of Chelsea move but is backed to shine by El Ghazi] You have to think about your muscles with so many games. I thought I was big and heavy, but sometimes you run into player and you think: is that a wall? But Ziyech is going to do well at Chelsea, 100%.
[El Ghazi has already joked in a farewell video to Ziyech at Ajax that the Blues-bound star needs to get himself to the gym] It was a joke anyway. Ziyech has his qualities and he shouldn’t have to be physical. He’s agile and can move well, because he’s so thin. Going to the gym doesn’t mean going to Basic Fit [Dutch gym chain] to become a powerhouse. You can also work your core, train your abs, pull ups. It doesn’t make you a bodybuilder. Being in the gym doesn’t just mean pumping and pumping.

[Anwar El Ghazi: Aston Villa winger says he cannot help but watch relegation rivals’ games] Yeah definitely, absolutely [my heart sunk] when I saw the end result. I got a text message, I wasn’t watching the game, we were in the hotel. My father messaged me and he was swearing, saying how unbelievable football is. He said Leicester lost the game against Bournemouth 4-1 and I was like ‘is he serious?’. It’s crazy, football is crazy. It will be really tough until the last game
[Focus shifts to Thursday’s trip to Everton] We won the game against Crystal Palace and we are looking forward to Everton now, three more finals to go. To be honest I am doing that, maybe because I am a football freak, but I definitely look at who other teams are playing. I understand the coach as well because at the end of the day we control only our own performances. But of course we are going to check who is playing West Ham, Watford and Bournemouth.
