Joe Ledley has assured Cardiff City supporters he will be staying with the club.
The highly-rated midfielder attracted interest from a number of clubs over the summer, but he maintains it was always his intention to sign a new deal at Ninian Park.
He is poised to put pen-to-paper on a contract spanning until 2010, and hopes to fulfil his ambition of playing in the Premier League with Cardiff.
"There was interest, but I've said all along I wanted to stay at Cardiff," Ledley told the Western Mail.
"Like anyone I want to play in the Premiership and I believe I can do that with Cardiff."
Cardiff are currently in the bottom half of the Championship but Ledley is confident of climbing the table.
He explained: "So far this season we definitely have not got as many points as we have deserved.
"But if we can win at Sheffield (United) then manage to beat Burnley on Saturday then that will put us right up there."
