Everton midfielder Amadou Onana has refused to speculate about his future.
The 21-year-old Belgian, who has been at the club since the summer, was rumored to leave in January.
However, Onana remained committed to the Goodison Park club, hoping to help them avoid relegation this season.
He told French publication SO FOOT this week: “I see myself having had a lot of life experiences, which will have made me learn a lot about human beings in general, as well as about myself [plans for the next five years].
“I see myself, God willing, in one of the biggest clubs recognised worldwide.”
“It’s not an easy season,” added Onana.
“I had never played before in a team that fought not to go down, and the fact that Everton is an important club in England, and that it has never gone down to the Championship, that adds a little more pressure.
“But we take it well, we live it well, we know that we have the quality and the ability to keep the club in the Premier League. On a personal level, it’s going pretty well, because I’ve evolved in the space of half a season, it shows on the pitch in the maturity of my game.
“I had to adapt quickly, because here , there is less time to think, fit in spaces, turn around… I create a lot more chances than before, because I am more present in the sixteen metres. When I took stock of my performances this summer, it was one of the points I wanted to improve.”
