Napoli playmaker Marek Hamsik has quashed reports in Italy claiming he is to leave the San Paolo stadium this summer.

Hamsik: Says he is going nowhere

Hamsik has been linked with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain, but the 24-year-old insists he is going nowhere.

"I love this jersey," Hamsik said to Sky Italia. "I've always said it, I have a further five years left in my contract and I'm very happy here.

"I have married this project and I want to continue to play here."

Hamsik signed a one-year contract extension with the Serie A outfit, which will keep him at Napoli until June 2016.

The Slovakian, who last summer was linked with a move to AC Milan, joined Napoli from Brescia in 2007 and has since established himself as a key player for the azzurri outfit.

He has scored seven goals in 31 league appearances for Napoli this season.
