Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey has eased talk of a move away from the club.
The 25-year-old was linked with Arsenal and AS Roma during the January market.
"In truth, there was nothing and I have not spoken to anyone. At the beginning of the season, I talked to the coach (Diego Simeone), because as a player, of course, I'm thinking of my future.
"I think that there is no place where I understand myself better than here. I have to work hard, try to use every minute and evolve."
The Ghanaian international was sent off in the Madrid derby as his side lost 3:1 at home.
