Eidur Gudjohnsen insists he does not want to leave Barcelona despite reported interest from a number of Premier League clubs.
The Icelandic international striker was thought to be unsettled at the Camp Nou as he finds a place in Frank Rijkaard's first XI increasingly hard to come by.
Gudjohnsen, 29, has started only two Primera Liga games this season as he competes for a starting berth with the likes of Lionel Messi, Thierry Henry and Ronaldinho.
However, Gudjohnsen - who joined Barca from Chelsea for £8million in 2006 - is adamant he is happy in Spain despite reported interest from Newcastle, West Ham, Manchester City and Portsmouth.
"Now I am in my best days with Barcelona," Gudjohnsen told El Periodico Barcelona.
"I am good physically and have a lot of interest in helping the team. The coach has confidence in me and this is very important.
"I thought in September if things did not change I would leave Barca, but now this is impossible.
"I discard my exit because I want to triumph in the Barca shirt. I know the club and the people and it is not possible to improve this situation at another club.
"If I receive a call from another club my answer will be negative."
