Michael Chopra has provided Cardiff with a much-needed boost by reiterating his commitment to the cash-strapped club.
Cardiff have been hit with a second winding up order over an unpaid tax bill of £2.7million and the sale of Chopra was seen as one way of raising revenue.
Newcastle have been linked with a shock swoop to take the 26-year-old striker back to the club where he started his career but he insists he is going nowhere.
Chopra made a lightning start to the season but went over three months without scoring until netting in Tuesday's FA Cup draw at Bristol City.
That took his tally to 13 goals from 24 starts this season and Chopra is determined to stay on the goal trail as the fourth-placed Bluebirds aim to secure promotion to the Premier League.
"I see myself as a Cardiff City player with two-and-a-half years on my contract," he told the club's official website.
"I will continue working my socks off for Cardiff."
