Zoltan Gera has insisted he is happy to stay at Fulham and is not bothered about the transfer talk linking him with a move away from Craven Cottage.
The Hungarian, who played a major part in the club's stunning run to the Europa League final where they lost in the dying minutes of extra-time to Atletico Madrid, has been linked with a move to Italian giants Roma.
However the 31-year-old maintained he was happy at Craven Cottage and was not eager to move anywhere despite the possibility of playing alongside the likes of Francesco Totti and Daniele De Rossi at the Stadio Olimpico.
"I'm contracted to the club and I feel good here, the season was like I planned," Gera told skysports.com
"My aim is to play like I did or even better. If the atmosphere is good and the team-mates are good it's only a part of how I feel.
"What really matters is how I play football. If a player doesn't do his job well then usually he wants to leave, if he performs well then he usually wants to stay and continue everything.
"At the age of 31 I don't think I'm getting older as a footballer, what's more - I feel better and better. I hope the best is yet to come."
Gera, who signed for Fulham from West Bromwich Albion on a free transfer in 2008, was happy that he had made the right choice in moving to Craven Cottage, despite his former club now being back in the Premier League.
Nevertheless, he could not hide his disappointment at losing the final, the first in Europe in the club's history, although he praised the achievements of his side.
"When I signed for Fulham I knew they were a strong team. Although they were almost relegated our recent run proves I made the right choice," he added.
"I still have a dubious feeling about our lost final in Hamburg. It's a fiasco because we lost but also a success as we could get there.
"It would have been nice to win the right to start in the Europa League, unfortunately we couldn't achieve it but it means that we can concentrate only on the Premier League."
