Swindon Town star Massimo Luongo is refusing to talk about his future as he sets his sights on helping fire the Robins into the Championship on Sunday. 

Luongo – who has hit six goals and racked up eight assists in 39 outings this term – has enjoyed a stellar season having thrust himself onto the global stage courtesy of a string of stunning performances in Australia’s victorious 2015 Asian Cup campaign.

Those stellar displays for both club and country have alerted a whole host of clubs, with La Liga giants Sevilla and Championship side Cardiff City both having bids rejected in January, whilst QPR, Crystal Palace, West Brom and West Ham are all thought to be keeping tabs on the 22-year-old.

Sources close to FLIC SPORT suggest that Tim Sherwood has made his former Tottenham pupil his top summer transfer target for Aston Villa, who made sure of their Premier League status at the weekend.

But Luongo has no time to think about a potential life away from The County Ground, with the hugely-talented starlet only focused on gunning down Preston North End in the League One Play-Off Final at the weekend and sealing a long-awaited return to English football’s second tier for Town.

“Listen, I’m really not thinking about next year or if it’s not my last game or if it is my last game,” Luongo told FLIC SPORT at Swindon’s pre-Wembley Media Day on Monday.

“At the moment, and I’ve been saying this to everyone, I’m still contracted to the club and I’m still a Swindon Town player – a permanent Swindon Town player.

“So, as far as anyone is concerned, even me, I’m still here next year and if anyone says anything then they probably know a little bit more than me, but as a Swindon Town player I’ve got one more game this season.

“And, not only for the club and the fans, but I want to do my best for the players and I want to get Swindon promoted.

“The ambition and the way it (the club) is run – obviously we don’t have the luxuries like a lot of other clubs do – but neither did Bournemouth or neither did Swansea at the time.

“We use that to our advantage and we use that to push forward – as a team we’ll do alright.

“We’ll be together on the day.”
