Newcastle United midfielder Gael Bigirimana wants to stay on Tyneside.

The England U20 international is a loan target for Championship clubs.

"People can say it's best for me to go on loan, but I'm not going anywhere. I'm going to stay here. I'm going to be patient, and I'm going to work my socks off," said Bigirimana.
