Striker Jackson Martinez insists he will not leave Atletico Madrid at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old has scored just three times in 12 games for Diego Simeone's side following his £25m move from Porto in the summer.

Speculation in some quarters of the Spanish press had linked the Colombia international with a move away from the Vicente Calderon, but Martinez has dismissed the claims.

"[The support at Vicente Calderon] is a positive for me," Martinez told La Sexta. "I'll fight until the end and it's not in my head, as has been said, to leave next season.

"I'll stay as long as the club wants me. That's according to results, and we know that's the way it is.

"The team is securing good results and I just need to keep working hard.

"I try and work hard in every game. I'm trying to adapt bit by bit but I do acknowledge that my productivity could be higher."
