Marseille attacker Jordan Ayew has said that he has no intention of leaving the club this summer and is even waiting on coach Elie Baup to wrap up a new deal for him to sign, Sky Sports reports.

Speculation surrounding his future has grown in recent weeks, linking him with a number of clubs from across Europe, with fellow Ligue 1 side St Etienne said to be leading the charge.

The 21-year-old is currently under contract with the southerners until 2015, and he has insisted that he is not looking to break the agreement early and try his luck elsewhere.

“I believe I have learnt to be patient. I don’t want to leave. I have everything at this club to be a success,” Ayew told L’Equipe.

“You always want more, but I won’t complain. I played a lot of matches last season. My work will pay off – I don’t know when, but it will pay off.”

Meanwhile, Marseille chairman Vincent Labrune has revealed that Baup, who led the club to a runners-up spot in Ligue 1 last season, has agreed to remain at Stade Velodrome until at least 2015.

He said: “Elie has adapted perfectly. Sometimes it feels like he has been at the club 10 years.

“He is so efficient and competent that we have decided to prolong his contract for one more season.”
