Despite Newcastle seemingly closing in on a deal for Modibo Maiga, the Sochaux striker claims he is content with seeing out his contract with his French employers.
Maiga went on strike during the summer with the hope of forcing through a move to St James' Park, but has since resolved his differences with Sochaux.
The 24-year-old has started the season in fine form - netting four times in his last three appearances - and Newcastle continue to track the Mali international.
Reports in France have claimed Newcastle have 'virtually agreed' a deal to bring Maiga to the north-east in January, but the young forward says he is fine where he is for the time being.
"I am 25-years-old so I know what is good for me, at the moment I am doing and honoring my contract with Sochaux," he said.
"I have played six games and scored four times, so I am doing my part.
"If I am ambitious I am not going to finish my career at Sochaux, but I have a contract until June 2014."
Although Leon Best and Demba Ba have been in impressive form for Newcastle this term, Alan Pardew is expected to reinforce his goalscoring ranks in the transfer window - and Maiga seems the most likely acquisition.
