PSG’s Matuidi intends to honour his contract in Paris.

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi has declared his commitment to the French champions despite growing interest from Liverpool, Newcastle and Everton.

The Frenchman has been watched by Premier League scouts throughout the past 12 months and it was thought that his admirers would submit a bid.

Yet with speculation growing on the Matuidi’s future the 26-year-old has spoken out about what he intends to do in the near future.

“I still have a year left on my contract with the club,” the France internationl was quoted on talkSPORT.

“For now, I am a PSG player - 100%. I have every confidence in the club and the president and they have faith in me.

“I can say that I will honour my contract until the last.”

Matuidi played in all but one of PSG’s title winning league season in 2012/13, scoring five goals and driving the side to Ligue 1 glory.

The midfielder also played a vital role in the club’s Champions League adventure, scoring the equalsiing goal in the quarter-final first-leg against Barcelona at the Stade De France, before the Catalans eventually eliminated the Parisian side.

PSG signed Matuidi from fellow French top flight team St Etienne in the summer of 2011 for £7m and since then the squad has changed dramatically around the former Troyes player.

Despite big money transfers made for stars such as Ezequiel Lavezzi, Lucas and Javier Pastore, Matuidi has continued to be an important part of the PSG first team.

It appears it would take a significant change in heart of both player and club if the Frenchman were to depart Paris for the Premier League.
