Stoke goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen admits he wants to fulfil his European ambitions with his current club.
The 33-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Britannia Stadium after a number of excellent performances so far this season, and recently hinted that he could leave the Potters.
However, although the Denmark international admits he is still extremely ambitious, he believes he can fulfil his goals with his current side.
"I was asked in an interview about my ambitions for playing elsewhere and I told him 'no'. I said I was really happy here," he told The Sentinel.
"I gave an example of that by telling him that someone had contacted me not long ago about a big club in Europe (not Bayern Munich as widely reported) that could be interested in me, but I said no. I told him that story to confirm I was happy at Stoke.
"Yes, at some stage I would love to play in Europe. I've played at the highest level with the national team and so playing in Europe would be an ambition.
"At some stage I would love to do that, but hopefully that can be with Stoke."
A recent Opta Index table has ranked Sorensen as the third best goalkeeper in the world behind Manchester United's Edwin van der Sar and Real Madrid's Iker Casillas.
"That is all very nice, but there's definitely no plans to leave," he added.
Stoke are currently 10th in the Premier League table with 24 points from 20 games and Tony Pulis' side take on Liverpool at home on Saturday.
Sorensen missed the Potters' last game against Fulham, and he hopes to return between the sticks in place of Steve Simonsen this weekend
He said: "The pain has gone and it has settled down now. It wasn't broken, it was a severe strain in the joint caused when I caught a ball."
