Plymouth Argyle's long-serving keeper Romain Larrieu insists he wants to stay and help the club win promotion back to the Championship.
Larrieu recently signed a new two-year contract at Home Park, but has been linked with a move back to the second tier.
He was overlooked in favour of loan signing David Stockdale during the second half of last season and Larrieu acknowledged it was frustrating to be on the bench.
However, following Peter Reid's appointment as the club's new manager, the 33-year-old has stressed he does not want to leave.
"I'm delighted to be at Plymouth Argyle and at the end of the contract I will have been here for 12 years or so, which is a great achievement considering the amount of players and managers that have come and gone since I joined," Larrieu told skysports.com.
"I am very proud to have been here so long and I can't wait to be part of the rebuilding job here. It is a new experience for me and I can't wait for the season to start.
"It was disappointing not to play in most of the games last year, but that is football.
"I would have loved the chance to help the club beat the drop more than I did last year, but that wasn't to be for one reason or another.
"I tried to help in any way I could, even though I wasn't starting games. I helped the club gain promotion to the Championship before and I am looking forward to helping them to it again."
