West Bromwich Albion's Nicolas Anelka is determined to remain in England despite facing an FA charge over his controversial "quenelle" gesture, the former France striker said on Monday.

Anelka made the alleged anti-Semitic salute after scoring against West Ham United last month and faces a minimum ban of five matches if found guilty.

There have been suggestions he might leave West Brom in the January transfer window but he explained on his Twitter account that he wanted to stay in England.

"Thanks to Lazio and all the other clubs who wanted to sign me these last days. See you this summer if I decide to continue (playing)," added Anelka.

"But the question is why should I leave my club and England? I'm happy here and I did nothing wrong. So now it's time to stay focused on my football with my club and I will try my best on the pitch like I always do."
