The midfielder, 33, is consistently being linked with a return to Norway at Rosenborg.
But he told VG: "It is important that what is written is true, and that it is not portrayed that I'm hunting anything.
"I'm not chasing a contract with Rosenborg, I'm not chasing to portray it as 'I'll be back, make room for me'. Absolutely not."
Tettey added: "I love Rosenborg, they mean a lot to me, but I don't want to go to Rosenborg as a 34-year-old who everyone just wants to remember how he was before. It gives me nothing, it gives the club nothing, it gives the fans nothing."
