Chuba Akpom has debunked claims he is keen to leave Sky Bet Championship club, Middlesbrough.
Akpom has one-year left on his contract with Michael Carrick’s side.
The 27-year-old caught the eye last season after emerging top scorer in the Championship with 26 goals.
The Nigerian-born forward also won the Player of the Year award.
Akpom said he is happy at the Teesside and will be willing to sign a new contract.
“Yeah, of course (I want to stay),” he told the Northern Echo.
“I’ve made it clear that I feel at home here, so I think me saying that shows that I would love to stay.”
“I’ve played my best football here and I just feel very loved by the fans. I still get a lot of love from the fans and I still feel at home at the club, in and around the training ground and stuff.
“We’ll just have to see how things go. A lot of things are not in my control or not in my hands, so I just have to focus on getting fit and being ready to play football again.”
