Tottenham Hotspur had been looking to bring the Dutchman in on loan until the end of the season, whilst Turkish giants Galatasaray had also been looking to strike a deal for him too.

The 24-year-old joined United from Vitesse Arnhem in the summer of 2012 for a deal of £5m, but has so far failed to establish himself in the first team and has thus been linked with a move away during the current transfer window.

However, Buttner did feature in his side’s FA Cup loss to Swansea City at the weekend and has stated his desire to stay and fight for his place with the defending champions to prove that he is capable of being more that just Patrice Evra’s backup.

“If people talk about other players in my position, I don’t care,” he said.

“I just want to play my game and show that I can handle the level. I know there are some clubs that want me but I’m happy here and want to play for United so I focus 100 per cent on here.

“I don’t want to leave. I want to fight for my place. I am still young and I know what I can do. I just have to wait for my chances and take them.”
