Newcastle United' midfielder Bruno Guimaraes says he is happy at St James' Park but acknowledges that Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations might dictate his future.

Sky Sports News revealed on Thursday that Newcastle, along with five other Premier League clubs, could be compelled to sell players this summer to comply with FFP rules. Guimaraes is rumoured to be among those potentially on the move, with Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal reportedly interested after his standout season under Eddie Howe.

When Brazilian media quizzed him about his plans for the upcoming summer, Guimaraes conveyed a clear message to the club'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 in my role, but it doesn't concern me in the slightest, as I mentioned, I'm content where I am.

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

Liverpool could be on the hunt for a central midfielder this summer after Thiago Alcantara was released after an injury-hit campaign. The Brazilian made 50 appearances for Newcastle this season scoring seven goals and grabbing ten assists.
