Barcelona whiz-kid Bojan Krkic says he is happy to stay with the Spanish treble winners, despite reports linking him with a move away from the Camp Nou this summer. The talented 18-year-old has made 54 league appearances, netting 12 goals, since graduating from the club's B team in 2007, but struggled to force his way past Lionel Messi, Samuel Eto'o and Thierry Henry in Pep Guardiola's pecking order last season, with his outings coming often as a substitiute. With little likely to drastically change in 2009/10 the youngster had been linked with a season-long loan deal, with Tottenham Hotspur one of several European clubs keen on securing his services. However, having held talks with the club's hierarchy, Krkic is set to stay with the Catalan giants both next season and for the foreseeable future. "The directors at Barca have told me to remain at the club and for me, that's the end of it," he told Sport. "I have a good relationship with coach Pep Guardiola and I have been given the playing time that I deserved. "The problem is that it is very difficult to break into the first team when three of the best forwards in the world are ahead of you. "But the important thing is that I have enjoyed every minute that I have played." NEWS: Bojan open to loan move offers NEWS: Clubs make contact over Bojan availability BARCELONA FANS!
