Newcastle United left-back Jose Enrique has admitted that he could stay with the Magpies to try to help them regain their Premier League status at the first attempt.
The 23-year-old Spaniard moved to England two years ago from Villarreal and has made just over 50 appearances for the Tynesiders.
He told Spanish newspaper Marca: "No-one likes to play in the Championship, but I'm only thinking about fulfilling my contract.
"The team has a great budget and I am sure that if they do things well from the beginning, we can create a team of the level of Aston Villa.
"I like the city and I am very happy in England, but that doesn't rule out that I will study any offer that could arrive.
"Today, I see myself playing next season at Newcastle.
"At the moment, I'm focused on my holidays. It was a bad time for me and I need to relax. It's been the longest year of my life."
