Avram Grant's agent Saif Rubie played down English media reports that linked the Ghana coach with a return to the Premier League with Queens Park Rangers or Aston Villa.

The former Chelsea manager, who guided the Black Stars to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations, has been linked with vacant posts at the two sides, but Rubie has denied any move is in the works.

"Avram loves the Premier League, but obviously he is under contract with the Ghana Football Association and he is very happy with how things have gone so far, helping the country go so close to winning the African Nations Cup,” Rubie told ESPN FC on Thursday.

"I know the people at QPR and Aston Villa very well and I really hope they stay up in the Premier League.

"Avram is focused on the job he has got with Ghana, but in football you just never know what might happen,” he concluded.
