Crystal Palace winger Jobi McAnuff has confirmed he will be staying at Selhurst Park.
The 24-year-old has been the subject of a summer move away from The Eagles, with skysports.com confirming late last month that McAnuff had handed in a transfer request.
Despite attracting interest from several Premiership sides, the former Wimbledon, West Ham United and Cardiff City man has decided his future is best laid by staying with Peter Taylor's side.
"I had a meeting on Monday and was pleased with how it turned out," McAnuff told Palace's official website.
"I said to the chairman (Simon Jordan) that it's a known fact I want to play in The Premiership and if the opportunity arose, I would have considered it.
"But at the same time, I'm contracted to Crystal Palace and I've got a job to do here and want to give my best."
