Bernard Mendy has confirmed interest in his services from English sides, but has ruled out leaving Paris Saint Germain.
The full back has endured a troublesome campaign both on and off the field and had been thought to be keen to leave the Parc des Princes.
But Mendy is determined to stick around and help PSG out of their current predicament, with Paul Le Guen's men in a relegation fight.
"It is true English sides have been interested. It was tempting as I had a great time at Bolton," Mendy told L'Equipe.
"But I also told myself I have been in Paris since 2000 and experienced a lot of things here, it would be a shame to give up now.
"Even if I had propositions, and I am sure the club had propositions too, leaving PSG in such a situation is not possible. That is not me, I love the club too much.
"I had a difficult time after the death of my father, it was difficult to come back, but the club helped me a lot."
PSG are sitting just three points above the relegation zone in Ligue 1, but Mendy is confident the club will remain in the top flight.
He said: "Of course, we could be relegated to Ligue 2, which would be a disaster. But to me it is out of the question."
