Yussuf Poulsen has emphasized that he's not considering leaving RB Leipzig.

"I have no plans to leave and see no reason why it should not continue - if the level suits the club and me," Poulsen told Bild.

"How many clubs in the world can offer me what RB do? We play Champions League every year, have title chances and top conditions in Leipzig."

The 28-year-old Danish international added that he can "well imagine" extending his contract, which expires in 2024.

"Max (Eberl, Leipzig's new sporting director) is there now. I will sit down with him," said Poulsen, who noted that he feels "almost German" after spending the last nine and a half years in Leipzig.

Poulsen has seen limited playing time after fighting his way back from a serious muscle injury. So far, he has made 11 appearances this season, scoring two goals.
