Outspoken Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has moved to end speculation over his immediate future by signing a one-year contract extension that will keep him at Paris Saint-Germain until the summer of 2016.

31-year-old Ibrahimovic, who joined the wealthy Parisians from Serie A giants AC Milan in July 2012, was linked with a potential switch away from the Ligue 1 champions during the summer, with some even suggesting he might be eager to silence his extensive list of detractors who claim he has never fully showcased his formidable talents in encounters with Premier League clubs.

Indeed, title hopefuls Manchester City and Chelsea were both believed to be pondering possible high-profile moves for Ibrahimovic during the previous transfer window.

A future in the English top-flight does not now appear to be on the horizon for the former Barcelona man, however, with Ibrahimovic re-iterating his desire for PSG to be his last 'big' club.

"I don't see a more ambitious club in Europe than Paris Saint-Germain," he said after signing the new deal.

"My wish is that Paris Saint-Germain is my last big club. This club is like me: the dream is never big enough."

Ibrahimovic, who has won 93 caps for his native Sweden, has enjoyed phenomenal success throughout his club career and PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi was understandably delighted to have secured the controversial striker's signature for a further year and spoke of his ambition to establish the club in European competition.

"The desire of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one of the best players in the world, to leave a long and lasting legacy at Paris Saint-Germain is a very strong sign.

"Together, we share the same ambition, to take the club to the summits of the European game," he said.
