The Frenchman has found himself as a transfer target for both Arsenal and Liverpool in recent weeks, but has distanced himself from the rumours linking him with an exit.

“I’m happy here – I said all along I was happy here at Newcastle. I will be here and trying to do my best for this club in 2015.”

The 25-year-old has been instrumental in Newcastle’s plans this season, and he highlighted this himself by pointing out the fact he has featured in a number of positions for the club – a role he is only too happy to take.

“I have played in different positions and on Sunday I was asked to play on the right side. I have played in the No 10 as well.

“I try to play where the manager wants me to. I do my best every time and on Sunday I was happy to play a role – I was happy for the team and for myself as well because I felt I made a contribution.

“It was good to get the three points but we have another game soon against Burnley and we have to play the same way.

“We have to win the next game now.”
