Senegal's Pape Diakhate has pledged his long-term future to Nancy.
The powerful defender, a target of a number of leading French clubs, says he is happy at Stade Marcel Picot.
"My future is here. The question of leaving Nancy doesn't exist," said the 22-year-old, who has helped Nancy to third place in the Ligue 1 table.
Diakhate has made 108 appearances for Nancy since making his first team debut as a teenager in the 2001/2002 season.
"This club is my second family. I came here as a teenager. I met my wife here and have a lot of friends here.
"I do not see myself anywhere else this winter or next summer," he told L'Est-Republicain.
