"I like it here, the manager trusts me, and I would like to continue here," Traore told skysports.com. "I am sure we will get promoted and bring this great club into the Premier League."
He added: "I am looking forward to it. I am enjoying myself here, so when you are happy somewhere it is good to stay."
