Fulham talisman Tom Cairney has insisted he is does not want to leave Fulham and is loving life on and off the pitch.
Newcastle made a bid in January to sign the Whites midfielder but the club's hierarchy blocked the move.
Cairney agreed a new deal earlier this summer to dispel any further transfer speculation and is dreaming of helping Fulham back to the Premier League.
"I was delighted to sign the new deal," he told the Evening Standard. "It has been the best time of my career down in London. Last season was the standout season in my career. I really like where the club are going and, hopefully, we can go one step further this season.
"Can we use last season as motivation? It is hard because it is such a long season and no two are the same. But the dream is to get Fulham back into the Premier League, where I think they deserve to be. To do it would be special.
"I love London. I do not want to move. It is a great place to live and I have settled quickly. I love life on and off the pitch and when you are happy you play your best football. You cannot put a price on happiness.
"If you are happy and you come into training with a smile on your face, you will always keep improving. It is something I did all of last season and I will look to do the same this season."
