Chelsea target Martins: I’m not leaving Newcastle

The 22-year-old said: “To bring this confusion now is wicked.

“I’m not leaving Newcastle and nobody has discussed such an issue with me. I love what I am doing now at the club.”

He added: “When you are playing well, different managers will show interest in you.

“But it does not mean my people have started discussions with anybody, including Chelsea.

“I am angry because it’s like people are trying to destabilize the team after we’ve started doing well.

“The speculation is not healthy for the team now. It can cause distraction and affect our morale.

“I don’t know where it emanates from but I am a Newcastle player – that’s all what counts at the moment.”
