Neymar focused on Santos

Neymar focused on Santos
Neymar admits that he is not yet ready to leave Brazilian club Santos.

Santos forward Neymar has insisted that he remains focused on Santos, despite continued speculation with a move to Europe.

The 20-year-old won his second successive South American player of the year award, but reiterated his desire to remain a Santos player.

"Everyone asks me the same question but I have a contract with Santos until 2014 and I am happy here with my family and my friends," The Telegraph quotes Neymar as saying.

"[Being the best player in the world] is not what I'm looking for.

"My goal is to help Santos and the Brazilian team. To be the best player in the world is a consequence of that work."

Neymar has 17 goals in 27 caps for Brazil.
