Nicolas Anelka committed to West Brom

West Brom striker Nicolas Anelka has announced he wants to stay with the club for the rest of the season.

Nicolas Anelka is staying put.

The Football Association has charged the Frenchman over his controversial 'quenelle' goal celebration against West Ham on December 28, alleging he made an abusive, indecent, insulting or improper gesture.

His critics insist that the gesture is anti-Semitic and an inverted Nazi salute. Anelka, who has denied the charge and requested a personal hearing, faces a minimum five-match ban if found guilty as the FA further allege that his conduct represented an aggravated breach in that it included a reference to ethnic origin, race, religion or belief.

There has been uncertainty over the 34-year-old's future. He wrote on his Twitter account on Saturday, "On my way...'', while reports have linked him with a potential move to Italian side Lazio.

But writing on Twitter on Monday afternoon, Anelka made it clear he does not want to leave Albion -- in the current transfer window at least.

He said: "Thanks to Lazio & all the others clubs who wanted to sign me this last (few) days. See you this summer if I decide to continue... But the question is why should I leave my club & England? I'm happy here & I did nothing wrong...

"So now it's time to stay focus on my football with my club & I will try my best on the pitch like I always do!''
