Milner indicates he's staying with Newcastle

James Milner has indicated he's staying with Newcastle United.

Milner has been linked with Middlesbrough and Aston Villa, but the winger told the Evening Chronicle: "If we start saying certain things it puts pressure on, especially if we don't start as well as we'd like to.

"But what I can say is that the club deserves to be in Europe.

"It's a massive club. I came to the club when it was in Europe. And that's where Newcastle should be.

"I'd love to be part of a Newcastle team that wins a trophy, whether it's next year or the years after. That has to be an aim.

"But next year the aim is to get into the top half, secure a position and be in the hunt for European football. We can do that - we know we can."
