Not speculation around me.

Newcastle defender Jamaal Lascelles appears to have committed his future to the club after dismissing speculation linking him with a summer transfer move to Chelsea.

The Blues failed to book a place in next season's Champions League as they went down 3-0 at Newcastle United, though Liverpool's victory over Brighton and Hove Albion meant a top-four finish would not have been possible regardless of the result on Tyneside. Speaking during an interview with Evening Standard said: "The smart money is on them hiring another of Europe's most established managers and giving him a decent budget to sign top-class players".

'I'm a Newcastle player, I'm happy here, I'm the captain and things are going really well. "You'll have to ask the club about that", Conte added.

Considering that Ayoze Perez has been Newcastle's most potent player this season with just six to his name, you can see where Benitez was coming from. "Finally, I would like to thank the fans for their unrivalled support of Rafa and the team throughout the season". "If we think we can play a game like this in the final of the FA Cup then we don't have a chance", Conte told reporters as he looked ahead to Saturday's Wembley showdown. For sure we can do better than before.

The Spaniard took over at St James' Park towards the end of 2015-16 and, although he could not stave off relegation, the Magpies bounced back at the first attempt by claiming the Championship title.

"Last season he helped me a lot during the season".

The dethroned Premier League Champions Chelsea have been linked with a potential appointment of Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri, ex-Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique and Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri.
