Lille ace Eden Hazard says he expects to stay at the club to embark on a maiden Champions League campaign next season.

The Ligue 1 player of the year is being courted by clubs across the continent after a stunning season with the champions. The Belgian international signed a one-year contract extension in early March, taking him through to 2015 with Les Dogues.

Hazard said: "I don't think I'll leave right now. But we know that in football if a big club puts in a big bid then I'll be off. I've got a contract until 2015 and I'm happy here. Next season there is the Champions League to play. I want to play it with LOSC, or with a big club."

Lille have been celebrating their historic double all week but the 20-year-old believes there are still things to play for in the club's final game of the season, at home to Rennes on Sunday evening.

"We've celebrated, of course.  The coach wants us to finish with the best defence in the league so we need to score twice against Rennes. And we want Moussa Sow to finish top scorer."

Lille have conceded 34 goals this season compared to 32 for Rennes. Sow is on 22 goals, one ahead of Kévin Gameiro of Lorient.
