Anthony Modeste: “Who said I was leaving?”

Speaking after FC Köln qualified for European football on Saturday, Anthony Modeste commented on his future at the Bundesliga side.

“Who said I was leaving the club? I have a contract until 2023 and I’m enjoying my time with my colleagues,” said Modeste.

The 34-year-old Frenchman has scored 19 Bundesliga goals this season and is partly the reason for Köln’s return to European football for the first time since 2017.

Modeste has one-year remaining on his current deal and there had been reports suggesting that a departure could be likely if a new contract agreement wasn’t reached.

According to Bild, Modeste would like to stay in Köln for another year and two and possibly sign a contract extension before their European campaign.
