Fulham striker Raúl Jimenez has hinted he has no plans to leave the club this summer, pouring cold water on suggestions he could return to Mexico.

The forward has been speaking to Youtuber Dr Garcia, relayed by Telediario, about his career to date and what the future may hold for him too.

He’s only been at Fulham since the summer, after joining from Wolves in a €6.4m deal, bringing an end to his five-year stay at Molineux.

He has enjoyed himself under Marco Silva, establishing himself as the first-choice striker earlier this season and scoring five goals in 20 games in the Premier League before injuries saw him replaced by Rodrigo Muniz.

His impressive performances, and a hamstring injury, have now left Jimenez on the outside looking in leading to suggestions he could be on the move in the summer.

A return to Mexico has often been mooted and a report earlier this month stated the Fulham striker had already made it clear he wanted to go home.

He half admitted that in an interview a week later but has now seemingly poured cold water on that happening any time soon.

“Yes, I have said that as long as I can (play) here in England, obviously without forcing, without seeing that I can’t and still wanting to be here, but yes, as long as I can compete in the best league in the world, I will be here,” he said.

Despite that, there is a plan to return to his homeland at some point, although it will only be with one club, his first team CF America.

“I think I’ve always said it, it would be the only team I would return to, I do, I’m telling you because there have already been cases… I would return to America, nothing else,” he added.
