Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul has laughed off suggestions he could be set for a summer switch to Chelsea.
The 20-year-old Dutchman is highly regarded at St James' Park and is expected to eventually take over from regular first choice Shay Given between the posts.
Newcastle's confidence in the player's potential has not stopped talk of possible overtures from elsewhere though, with Chelsea believed to be monitoring the player's situation.
However, while Krul believes a loan spell away from the club would only aid his development, he is convinced his future remains bright in the North East.
"This is my club and I want to stay," he told the Evening Chronicle.
"You never know what can happen. Things can change in one day or in three years' time.
"All I know is I love Newcastle and I love England. There's been a lot of speculation and a lot of stories. But it's just talk."
The Holland Under 21 international spent part of last season on-loan at Falkirk, and having enjoyed the experience would not rule out a similar move this term.
"Going out on loan makes you a better player. It doesn't matter where you go.
"I just hope to get my chance and prove myself to the manager.
"We will see what happens in the next few weeks."
