Norwich captain Russell Martin insists he wants to stay on at the club and help them win an immediate return to the Premier League.
Martin has been with the Canaries since 2009, initially on-loan for a season before signing permanently, making over 250 appearances.
However, the Norwich captain has now suffered two relegations from the top-flight and he admits keeping the squad together is going to be key in trying to earn another promotion.
The 30-year-old insists that he is not considering an exit and remains focused on achieving as much as he can with the Carrow Road outfit.
Martin said: Â“You canÂ’t tell where youÂ’re going to be next week in football, but I want to be here.
Â“IÂ’m captain of this football club, I love playing for this football club and I want to get us back to the Premier League. ItÂ’s as simple as that.
Â“So yes, IÂ’m hurting and we need to make sure we use that for next season.
Â“I hope the squad will stay together.
Â“IÂ’m sure there will be interest in some players, itÂ’s as simple as that. There was last time, there was interest in a lot of us and a lot of us decided to stay or the football club made an effort to keep us.Â”
