Emil Krafth: Newcastle told me to forget about January exit

Emil Krafth says he's happy at Newcastle United.

The Sweden defender was the subject of January interest from Galatasaray and Istanbul Basaksehir.

But Krafth told Fotboll Transfers: "I also heard that there was interest, but it was not really anything concrete.

"The club was quite clear that they wanted to keep me. We were three right-backs during that period, which was one too many. But (DeAndre) Yedlin's contract expired so he left for Galatasaray instead.

"Newcastle were very clear from the start that they wanted me to stay."
