Despite rumours saying Spanish forward Albert Luque has played his last game for Newcastle, the striker has shot down speculation that he his certain to play in the Primera Liga next season.
Luque has been tipped by the Spanish media as a possible replacement for ex-Celtic star Henrik Larsson at Barcelona. However, the 28-year-old, who joined Newcastle from Deportivo La Coruna last summer, insists he has no intention of leaving St James Park. He has a habit of telling the English media he is happy here ... but says the opposite to their Spanish counterparts ... not this time however.
'I am happy here and Newcastle are counting on me,' Luque told Spanish radio station Onda Cero.
'I have no need to move clubs.'
Barcelona-born Luque is an ardent Barca fan, but believes he would struggle to get a place in the starting line-up at either the Nou Camp or Real Madrid.
'It's very difficult to earn a starting place at Barca or Real Madrid because they are the best teams in the world. With players like Samuel Eto'o, Ronaldinho and Lionel Messi it's very difficult to be in Barca's starting 11.'
