Fernando Torres is determined to remain with Atletico Madrid and says he is not interested in moving anywhere else.
The striker, who recently scored his 100th goal for boyhood club Atleti, is on a season-long loan from AC Milan.
It is unclear if the deal will be extended, with head coach Diego Simeone apparently unsure whether the 31-year-old has proved his worth on the pitch.
But, speaking to Spanish radio station COPE, Torres made it clear that he wants to stay at the club where he started his career.
"Now is not the time to listen to offers, nor do I have any interest, I want to be at Atleti," he said.
"My future is to win here. It is something I have not done yet. Today I have the good fortune to play where I want, I do not know until when, but I want to enjoy every game."
Torres has struggled for consistency this season, scoring just four goals in eight La Liga starts.
However, with Jackson Martinez leaving in January to join the Chinese Super League, there is less competition up front.
"I am aware that my performance has to be better," he said. "I want to play a leading role and since I have arrived I have not had consistency. Maybe I have not earned it.
"I always want to play for 90 minutes but I have to improve."
