Barcelona's Puyol rejects Russia, UAE offers

Carles Puyol has stated his intent to remain with Barcelona by turning down offers from clubs in Russia and the United Arab Emirates.

El Mundo Deportivo reports that the centre-back has rejected a lucrative overture from an unnamed Russian Premier League outfit as well as one from a UAE club.

Puyol, who will miss this summer's Euros with Spain because of a knee injury, wants to stay with the Catalan giants for whom he has a contract until June 2013.
