Crystal Palace's Moroccan striker Marouane Chamakh said on Monday he is happy at his side  denying having any intention to leave the English club.

Several reports suggested the departure of the Moroccan striker to the French League where he played at Bordeaux from 2002 to 2010 but the international striker confirmed his stay at Crystal Palace.

''I am happy at Crystal Palace,'' Chamakh was quoted as saying by MENA on Monday.

''I have no intention to return to the French League. If it happens, it would be for Bordeaux only.

The 30-year-old remembered his spell at Arsenal where he played for three seasons.

Despite a good start with the Gunners in 2010, Chamakh was dropped from Arsene Wenger's   squad during the next two seasons and he joined West Ham United on a six-month loan deal in January 2013.

Last summer the international striker joined Crystal Palace and he appeared in a good form as he scored four goals in 20 appearances.

''I faced many difficulties at Arsenal. But it is different at Crystal Palace. ''
