Hatem Ben Arfa has pledged his future to Newcastle United - unless a big club makes him a serious offer.
But the player, 25, said he felt like Newcastle was his home, and was the place he had "grown up".
It cames as the player's Newcastle United teammate Ryan Taylor backed the midfielder to take Euro 2012 by storm.
The Frenchman, who is currently on international duty with France, has been in brilliant form since recovering from a double leg fracture which was operated on in October 2010.
"If I do not have a really, really serious offer, I’ll stay," he told French newspaper L’Equipe.
"If a big club comes, but does not offer anything interesting – that is to say, the coach really wants me – I’ll stay.
"Newcastle is a big club, even if there are bigger. I still have three years on my contract, but I know that time will pass quickly."
Speaking about his difficult times at Ligue 1 giants Marseille, he said: "I’ve never felt as settled at a club as I do at Newcastle. I feel like I’m somebody important there, it’s a magnificent feeling.
"I haven’t forgotten the coach made me sign, even though I was only on loan from Marseille and I was injured.
"There were bad vibes around me [at Marseille]. I am much calmer now and I’ve addressed any problems I had myself, whereas before it was always the fault of others.
"I mostly felt a change in myself after I left Marseille. I began to realise I needed to grow up and I had been harming myself, rather than others."
