The Cameroon international joined Anzhi in August 2011 from Inter Milan but speculation has continued to surround his future and PSG were linked with a move during the recent transfer window.
Eto'o says there was contact but has insisted he is happy in Russia and wants to carry on playing for Anzhi.
The 31-year-old has given no thought to retirement and fully intends to carry on at international level as well.
He told Canal+ Club: "PSG is a big club with a big manager in Carlo Ancelotti. There was contact, but I stayed at Anzhi. I am not returning to Western Europe.
"I am not stopping playing in six months, no way. I will also continue with Cameroon.
"At the start I was playing for money, but now I am well paid I do not play for money, just for pleasure.
"While the pleasure is there, I will continue."
