Newcastle, West Ham target Gudjohnsen wants Barcelona stay

Eidur Gudjohnsen wants to stay with Barcelona, despite interest from Premiership clubs.

Gudjohnsen - who joined Barca from Chelsea for £8million in 2006 - is adamant he is happy in Spain despite reported interest from Newcastle, West Ham, Manchester City and Portsmouth.

"Now I am in my best days with Barcelona," Gudjohnsen told El Periodico Barcelona. "I am good physically and have a lot of interest in helping the team. The coach has confidence in me and this is very important.

"I thought in September if things did not change I would leave Barca, but now this is impossible.

"I discard my exit because I want to triumph in the Barca shirt. I know the club and the people and it is not possible to improve this situation at another club.

"If I receive a call from another club my answer will be negative."
