Guingamp midfielder Gilbert Imbula has insisted that he is not looking to leave the French club anytime soon.

The 20-year-old is rated as one of the most promising footballers in French football and holds the record of being the youngest player to start a Ligue 2 game at 17 years and one month.

French first division clubs Lyon and Rennes made contact with Imbula's agent last summer and Arsenal and Chelsea scouts too have reportedly regularly watched him in action at Stade du Roudourou.

However, Imbula insists that he wants to carry on playing for Guingamp.

"I won't start to get inflamed," he said. "I have to settle in the team and play a lot of matches before leaving."
