Barcelona starlet Riqui Puig is making headlines on Monday with Sport reporting the 20-year-old has no intention of leaving the club on loan in January.

AS reported over the weekend that Barcelon plan to decide in December whether the youngster will stay with Barca B or head out on loan, but the midfielder apparently is not interested in a move away.

Puig reportedly rejected the chance of a loan move in the summer and is unwilling to listen to offers when the transfer window reopens as he is determined to make the breakthrough into the first team.

The 20-year-old is said to be aware of what happened to Sergi Samper after he joined Granada on loan and is willing to be patient and wait for his chance. He is expected to have opportunities in the first team this season in the Copa del Rey and is determined to impress.
