David Nugent insists his future is with Portsmouth.
A proposed switch to Derby did not materialise, however, and now Nugent insists: "There was no way I wanted to leave. That's why all the speculation was so frustrating.
"People were saying I wanted to leave when I didn't. I've only been here two months and I signed a four-year contract. Now I want to stay as long as possible and fire Portsmouth into Europe."
