Jan Vertonghen insists there is no chance of him leaving Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
After another season where the club failed to qualify for the Champions League, doubts have emerged over the future of another of Tottenham's key players in Hugo Lloris, who has been tipped to replace David de Gea should he leave Manchester United.
In previous summers, such doubts have befallen Vertonghen, who last summer was linked with a move to Barcelona, among others.
But amid fresh rumours of interest from Napoli, the Belgium international has swiftly ended talk over a possible exit, committing his long-term future to the club.
"I think I will stay," Vertonghen, who is away on international duty, told the Belgian press, the Evening Standard reports.
"That is one of those typical rumours doing the round every summer. There is no way I am leaving."
This week, Vertonghen has also done his part in persuading teammate Lloris to reject the advances of Manchester United.
Lloris this week denied the existence of a £14.9m ($22.8m) release clause in his contract but did indicate he would consider his options should an offer come in.
But Vertonghen has urged his club captain to remain at White Hart Lane and help Spurs in their bid to crack the top four after finishing the 2014-15 season in fifth place, six points behind United.
"He's a great guy, great captain, great goalkeeper and a brilliant player for us," said Vertonghen, whose Belgium team face Lloris's France in an international friendly on 7 June.
"He's the captain, very important and this season he was one of our best players. He's been outstanding for us and if you want to continue growing as a club you have to keep your best players and Hugo is one of them.
"I hope Tottenham can keep him. It will be a sign for everyone next year that we want to compete in the Premier League."
