Newcastle midfielder Charles N'Zogbia has signed a new five-year contract to keep him at St James' Park.
N'Zogbia joined Newcastle from French club Le Harvre in 2004
The 21-year-old Frenchman was linked with a move to Arsenal during the transfer window, but has now pledged his future to Sam Allardyce's side.
"I am happy to sign my contract and I see my future with Newcastle because it is a great club," said N'Zogbia.
"At the end of last season I thought I might leave as I was unhappy but it is all different now with the new boss."
He added: "I have always loved the city, the fans and the club and wanted to stay here.
"I'm delighted now that I'm playing and I'm really enjoying my football."
N'Zogbia, who has already scored twice this season, was called into the France Under-21 squad earlier this week.
Newcastle fought a lengthy legal battle with N'Zogbia's home town club Le Havre after luring him to England as a teenager in September 2004.
