Clement Lenglet has insisted he will remain at Barcelona next season despite being linked to a move away from Camp Nou.

Ronald Koeman is set to bolster his squad for the upcoming campaign, and a number of new faces have already been brought in, including Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia from Manchester City, and Lenglet expects to play a role in Koeman's side next season.

When asked by Eurosport on his future plans, Lenglet said: "I do not see myself leaving. I re-signed a new contract last season. I will be at Barca next season."

He also praised Koeman, and welcomed Barcelona's decision to keep him at the club longer. Lenglet added: "He did a good job in his first year. We had some somewhat complicated periods but also others with a quality of play, wins and a positive image.

"I hope that we will continue the work undertaken and progress next year. We are heading in the right direction."

The Frenchman addressed Barcelona’s transfer business in the summer so far, and said: "We signed two great players from a big club. In the end, Barca will remain Barca.”

Finally, on the subject of Lionel Messi’s contract renewal, Lenglet added: “I do not know if I will play with him next year but I hope he stays.”
