Senegal striker Henri Camara has ended speculation about his future by putting pen to paper on a new three-year contract with Wigan Athletic. The 29-year-old has been linked with Portsmouth and Newcastle United in recent weeks, but has now agreed to stay at the JJB Stadium until the summer of 2009. "I am happy at Wigan, I am playing the best football of my career, I am settled in the area, I have a good relationship with the supporters and I think the partnership with Emile Heskey is going to bear a lot of results this season," Camara told the club's official website. "Why on earth would I want to leave when there is so much going for me here? "In my mind I have never wanted to leave. I get on with the manager, and I believe he understands how to get the best out of me as a player. "Some of the signings made in the summer have also convinced me that the club is really going places and moving in the right direction." Camara joined the Latics from Wolves in a £3million deal last summer and netted 12 times in 29 Premiership appearances as the club marked its debut top-flight season with a tenth placed finish.
