The former Ipswich Town star has been linked with a move away in the summer, with both Manchester City and Liverpool linked with the 26-year-old, but Bilic is adamant he can keep hold of him.

The left-back still has four years remaining on his current deal and there is a further two year option after that so Bilic is eager for him will stay.

“Aaron Cresswell is having a great season. He was Hammer of the Year last year, he’s a great professional and he’s always available. He’s great,” he said.

“He had a great season last season, on the ball and with his crossing and technique. He is almost a playmaker from defence.

“Aaron improved defensively and is almost a complete player now. He naturally became of interest to so many good clubs.

“I spoke to him. First, he is under contract and second, and more importantly, he is really happy here and can’t wait for the future.”
