Dutch striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel wants to stay in Portugal and remain with Sporting Lisbon, despite the reported interest of Premier League giants Liverpool and Man Utd.

The forward only recently joined the Portuguese side last summer, but a string of excellent displays has seen his name mentioned with a mega money move to England.

But van Wolfswinkel wants to remain focused on the job in hand, and is happy to stay with Sporting.

"It is good that my name was linked to big clubs such as Manchester United and others in England, but I am really content and happy at Sporting," Van Wolfswinkel told Dutch radio station NOS.

"Things are excellent in every sense. I play for a good club and I am scoring goals because I am taking this satisfaction on to the pitch."
