Boa Morte, who scored The Cottagers' recent equaliser against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, had been linked with a return home.
The 25-year-old only recently hinted he would, in fact, like his contract at the club extended, though that was before the exit of French coach Jean Tigana.
"I have two more seasons left on my contract and everything indicates that I am going to fulfil them," said Boa Morte to O Jogo.
"I'm ambitious and professional, and want to help the club reach its goals."
The former Southampton and Arsenal man believes the team's participation in last summer's InterToto competition led to fatigue in their league campaign.
However, the Lisbon-born ace reserved special praise for temporary manager Chris Coleman, who has revitalised the team following the departure of Tigana.
"We were inconsistent due to tiredness," explained Boa Morte.
"We began the season very early due to our participation in the InterToto Cup, and that had consequences.
"The exit of our coach also didn't help, though his successor has done excellent work. He's helped us a lot in the final weeks of the season."
