Reims coach Oscar Garcia is delighted Hugo Ekitike is staying.

The France U21 striker was expected to join Newcastle United after an offer was accepted by Reims.

But Ekitike pulled out of the move this week.

Former Watford coach Garcia said, "He told me that he wanted to stay, but if Real Madrid or Barcelona are coming... I sense Hugo is calm.

"I talked with him. He will have no problem staying at the club and neither will I!"
