Newcastle United's star midfielder Bruno Guimaraes has expressed his contentment at St James' Park but acknowledges that Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations may influence his future.

Sky Sports News reported on Thursday that Newcastle are among six Premier League clubs who might need to sell players this summer to comply with FFP rules. Guimaraes is reportedly one of the players who could depart, having attracted attention from Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool and several European teams following an impressive season under Eddie Howe.

When Brazilian reporters questioned him about his plans for the upcoming transfer window, Guimaraes delivered a clear message to Newcastle's management regarding his intentions. "Look, my future, to be honest, is in God's hands," he declared.

"I have a contract with Newcastle, I'm very happy, as I said, I know how much they like me, I know everything I've been doing for the club. In short, I have a contract, I'm happy.

"I don't know what can happen, we know everything about Financial Fair Play, but what I can say is that I feel happy. It's obviously very nice to be associated with big clubs; it indicates that I'm performing well, but I'm not concerned about it, as I said, I'm happy at the club.

"I'm very happy, so let's see what happens. I'm not in any hurry, I'm happy, and it's up to God, let's see what happens."
