Martins settled on Tyneside

24 Oct 2007 - 13:44:00

Newcastle United striker Obafemi Martins insists he is happy at the club and has no intention of leaving while Sam Allardyce remains on Tyneside.

The 22-year-old has re-established himself in the Magpies first team recently and his goal in Monday's 3-1 win against Tottenham brought his tally for the club to 22 in only 50 starts.

The Nigeria international told the Magpies' official website: "I feel settled in English football.

"Glenn Roeder was right, it wasn't that easy for me to come to Newcastle and it took me a few months to learn new stuff about the Premier League, English football and living in Newcastle.

"I had to adapt to the style of football and it took me some time, but I'm very happy here. Things are going well.

"I didn't really feel as though I had to prove myself to a new manager when Sam Allardyce came, I just knew I had to work hard and he would see what I could do.

"I never took any notice of the stories saying I'd leave in the summer and, if Sam Allardyce is here for five years, I will be here for five years also.

"That's how much I enjoy playing for him. I don't think I'll be going anywhere while Sam is here. I'm scoring goals and I'm playing games, that's all you can ask for as a striker."
