Moussa Sissoko expects to stay at Newcastle for the rest of the season but the France international will consider his future after Euro 2016.
The 26-year-old has been linked with Napoli this month following the arrival at St James’ Park of Jonjo Shelvey and Henri Saviet.
But with the European Championships taking place in his home country this summer, Sissoko is wary of jeopardising his place in Didier Deschamps’ squad by moving away from Tyneside.
“I do not think I will leave Newcastle,” Sissoko told Telefoot. “The club will not want to let me go.
“And then the question arises about the timing, a few months before the Euros.
“I have been called up to the national team despite our results. I get to play every weekend and perform well.
“Like every player I dream of winning titles and matches in the biggest clubs. I will think about my future after the Euros.”
