Andres Iniesta has confirmed that he will put pen paper on a new deal at the Nou Camp, despite speculation linking him with the likes of Manchester United and City.

French newspaper Le 10 Sport is reporting that the Spaniard, who is still locked in negotiations over an extension on his contract, revealed after last night's victory over Real Madrid in El Classico that he would be staying at Barcelona.

The Spain international's current deal ends in 2015, and there had been initial rumours that he could be tempted into a shock move to the Premier League.

However Iniesta has now all but completely ruled out a move away from the Catalan club, stating his desire to end his career there.

"I am pleased to [tell] FC Barcelona, I will extend my contract," the 29-year-old said post-match last night.

His words echoed the promises of Barcelona's vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu, who stated earlier this week that Iniesta was close to penning a new deal which would see him become one of the highest paid players in Europe.
