The 25-year-old has scored seven goals in 31 Ligue 1 appearances this season to help his side to sixth place, still on the fringes of the battle for Europa League qualification.

That has seen him linked with a number of high-profile European clubs, with Serie A side Lazio another reported to be monitoring his progress, but he is determined to remain loyal to his current employers.

In a webchat on lequipe.fr, he said: "Of course it's flattering when a club like Newcastle, OM or Lazio are following me, but I signed a three-year contract with Nice.

"I really want to experience the new stadium so I will do all I can to still be here next season. But we will have to see what the directors want."

Nice are due to move into their new home, L'Allianz Riviera, in September, a few weeks after the start of next season. The stadium will also be one of the venues when France hosts Euro 2016.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
