Alan Lee insists he never wanted to leave Ipswich Town before signing a new contract.
The Republic of Ireland international has agreed an extension to stay at Portman Road until 2009.
He was wanted by Hull City and Ipswich's Championship rivals had two bids for the striker rejected.
Lee was aware of the interest from Hull, but was only focused on securing his future with Jim Magilton's Ipswich.
"I'm obviously delighted to get things sorted, but it was never in my mind to move on," Alan told the club's official website.
"There was a lot of speculation around and family and friends are asking you what is going on, but I took it as a positive that clubs were interested in me.
"I didn't let it affect me and now things have been confirmed I can look to the future here and I can only see it being a bright future for this football club.
"We have some very good players and I want to play my part in helping Ipswich get back in the Premiership."
