Fit-again midfielder Miguel de las Cuevas insists he wants to stay with Atletico Madrid.

De las Cuevas has recovered from a serious ankle injury suffered in August 2006 and insists he sees his future with Atletico.

"I have a long-term contract here and want to prove myself," said the midfielder. "Now that I am practically fully recovered, I am eager to play again. I am not thinking about leaving."
