"I think I will definitely be here next season. Yes, I want to stay. I have played five years for this club and I'd love to stay here," The Sun quoted him, as saying.
"I love the people, the players are fantastic, the atmosphere is unbelievable, the staff are great. That is the reason I want to stay," he added.
