Newcastle midfielder Moussa Sissoko is happy to stay at the club, despite rumours he is a target for Arsenal and Paris St Germain.

The 25-year-old has impressed since arriving at St James' Park in January 2013 and speculation over his future intensified when he described Arsenal as "the club of my heart" at the start of the January transfer window amid rumours PSG had joined the race for his signature.

But Sissoko has said: "My goal was to come to England because it was the championship that best matched my game and I do not think I am wrong.

"So I want to stay here and grow at one of the biggest clubs in England. I have a preference for the Premier League and I see myself staying here.

"I am focused on Newcastle. I have a four-and-a-half year contract so in my head I still tell myself I am still here for four years and a half. They appreciate me here and everything is good."

"I am not saying that I absolutely want to go or not. If it happens, it happens. I am at Newcastle and I will continue to work until one day I have the chance to play at a very big club.

"Nobody has called me. My agent and I have not spoken to anyone.
