Malaga midfielder Jeremy Toulalan has all but rejected the possibility of leaving the club in the summer transfer window.
The French midfielder was believed to be unhappy with the poor financial situation at La Rosaleda, and he was widely tipped to leave the club at the end of the current campaign.
Atletico Madrid are keeping close tabs on the experienced midfielder and they are expected to follow up their interest in the coming weeks.
Toulalan, however, claims that he is happy to remain at Malaga, even if he is not ruling out a summer exit.
“It would be difficult to be happier than I am here,” Toulalan said to Le Progres. “I’m really happy, and, at the moment, the club are not talking about a possible departure.
“Even if we do discuss it, we would do so quietly.”
Jeremy Toulalan was one of the first high-profile players to arrive at La Rosaleda as he joined in an €11 million deal from Lyon in the summer of 2011.
He has since featured in 42 La Liga matches for los Boquerones and played an integral part as Malaga reached Champions League quarter-finals.
