Miralem Sulejmani has revealed he has no intention of leaving Ajax in the summer amid rumours linking him with a Premier League move.
The young Serbia international, who can function as a winger or a striker, has played a key role for the Eredivisie giants since the departure of Luis Suarez to Liverpool in January.
His performances have attracted interest from overseas, with Liverpool and fellow Premier League giants Arsenal thought to be chasing his signature.
But the 22-year-old, who has scored nine goals for Ajax this season, six of which came after Suarez's exit, insists his future lies with the Godenzonen.
"I can already say that next season I will play at Ajax," Sulejmani told NUsport.
"It is my fourth season, but probably the first in which I play from the first game.
"I want a full season for this club. I owe the club and the fans that."
Former Heerenveen attacker Sulejmani says Ajax coach Frank de Boer is a big reason behind his decision to stay at the club.
He added: "I have to thank him. He likes to make players better, gives them confidence and clarity.
"For his first match against AC Milan he came to me and said: 'I've seen at Heerenveen what you can [do], you cannot be forgotten'.
"I thought 'wow this is something new, so much trust'."
