Neymar brushed away questions about his future at Paris Saint-Germain as he claimed the Ligue 1 player of the year prize.

The Brazil international picked up the award on Sunday despite missing the three months of the season with injury.

The world's most expensive player scored 19 goals in just 20 league games for PSG before suffering a broken metatarsal in February that required surgery.

He has not played since and only returned to France at the start of this month, fuelling speculation that he could seek to leave the club after just one season.

"We talk about these things every time the transfer window comes around. I don't want to talk about anything at the moment," Neymar said.

"Everyone knows why I came here, what my objectives are. Right now, my objective is the World Cup, not talking about transfers.

"I spend my whole life, every transfer window, talking about it. It's a bit annoying.

Neymar beat two of his team-mates - Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe - as well as Marseille winger Florian Thauvin to the prize, voted for by league's players.
