Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard said he intends to stay at Stamford Bridge despite speculation linking him with a move abroad.
Lampard had his most prolific season for Chelsea scoring 21 goals
The 29-year-old is still to sign a new contract but is hopeful the situation will be resolved in the next few weeks.
Lampard has two years to run on his current deal but that has not stopped reported interest from European giants Barcelona and Juventus.
Last season was his most prolific yet, scoring 21 goals for the Blues.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has hailed Lampard as one of his "untouchables", but his position in the Chelsea team has come under pressure since the arrival of German midfielder Michael Ballack last summer.
And although Ballack has not made a huge impact scoring just eight goals last season, it is thought both he and striker Andriy Shevchenko are now amongst the highest earners at the club.
Since joining Chelsea from West Ham for £11m in May 2001, Lampard has won two Premiership titles, two League Cups and one FA Cup.
But the England midfielder has come in from criticism this season for his performances for the national team and was booed during England's recent match against Brazil at Wembley.
