“I said straight away that I wanted to stay here. We were fighting relegation, there was a cause. I could not go.
“If a big club comes in for me in the future who knows because every player wants to play for a big club. But I am very, very happy here.
“I have always wanted to play in the Premier League and I truly believe it is the best league in the world.
“It is an intense league and it has been a hard season because I am used to winning. But it is also very rewarding when you achieve in this intense situation that we had here."
