Gael Bigirimana: Planning to stay and fight for his place at Newcastle

Bigirimana has been linked with a loan move away from St James' Park in search of regular first-team football, with a number of clubs thought to be admirers of the former Coventry man.

However, Bigirimana insists he has no plans to go out on loan and is determined to push his claims to be a regular in Pardew's side.

"People can say it's best for me to go on loan, but I'm not going anywhere," Bigirimana told The Shields Gazette.

"I'm going to stay here. I'm going to be patient, and I'm going to work my socks off.

"I showed last year that I didn't look out of place in the big games. That's not being big-headed. That's how I feel I did.

"So I'm not going on loan. My target this season is to fight. You never know how the season can change.

"Patience is the key. In football, you've got to be patient. You've got to stay fit and keep working in training."
