Newcastle United midfielder Emre insists he sees his future at St James' Park.
Speculation during the January transfer window suggested that the Turkey international could be set for a move away from Tyneside.
But Emre, who started his first game under manager Kevin Keegan in the 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough, has voiced his commitment to The Magpies.
"I would never say anything about leaving Newcastle. And I am focused on my future here," he told the Evening Chronicle.
"I am happy. Kevin is a very honest man and a good manager. We're all happy in the dressing room.
"I love the city and I am very happy in the dressing room. Now I have to show everything for the manager and everything for this club.
"My aim, though, is to play more times than in the last three months. My country has the European Championships in June so the next four months are important for me.
"They are the most important four months of my career and we have to try to finish as high as we can in the Premier League for the Newcastle supporters."
