Liverpool – and a host of Premier League clubs – have been linked with a move for Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles in recent times – but the defender has refuted those claims in a recent interview with Geordie paper the Shields Gazette.

“This is the happiest I’ve been. I’m playing week in, week out, and I’m the captain here,” he said. “The fans love me. I’ve got a good relationship with them, because I love them. And we’re doing well, too.

“I’m very happy here. You hear things – you hear rumours and stuff – but I’m a young player, and I need to be playing football at a good club – and that’s what this is.

“Overall, it’s been an unreal season as far as I’m concerned, both for me personally, and, more importantly, for the club.

“This is the right club for me at the right time,” said the former England Under-21 international. “We have a huge fanbase, an amazing manager, and this club is massive. It has so much history.

“As captain, I want to see how far we can go – and, potentially, take it back to where it belongs.”
