When told about the article, in an English Sunday newspaper, Seb's reaction is to say:
"Who said that? I only know about Newcastle, but I just want to stay at West Ham.
"This must be just some speculation from journalists and something is said every year, but I just want to stay here - and they want me to stay for a long time.
"I spoke with Paul Aldridge three weeks ago and will definitely stay the next two years - and hopefully beyond that.
"When you have just won player of the year it is not possible to leave just after; I want to prove to the fans that the award is very important to me and that I can't leave because of them.
"I want to stay here, it is a good team, and I am sure that next season will be much better than the one just gone.
"For me, West Ham is like my family and I would never move, but, although I say that, if it is best for the team that I go to, I don't know, Newcastle or PSG for the money I would not say no to Glenn because he is my second father.
"If West Ham need the money and he says 'Seb, could you go' I would, but if he says stay, I will - no problem.
"I know West Ham have a lot of ambition and I repeat, I want to stay a long time because I have a lot of ambition with this team.
"I have just bought a new flat and I don't want to have bad ideas in my head about moving."
Earlier in the season, there were stories about a move to Glasgow Rangers, about which Seb says:
"It is finished because I said I didn't want to go to Glasgow; they wanted me for £4m or £4.5m because they spoke with my agent, but I said I wanted to stay at West Ham, which is my first option.
"If they want me to leave I will, but my first choice is to stay at West Ham."
Indeed, Seb feels that West Ham can become regarded as a much bigger club than at present and adds:
"We can be much better than Glasgow Rangers, sure, but much better than Newcastle - for me, it is the same as it is the same squad, the same mentality, the fans are one family and it is exactly the same.
"If one day I would change it would be for Arsenal or Manchester United, but not for Sunderland or Newcastle, the same sorts of clubs."
And a last word on the raising of his profile that has seen a player signed for less than £500,000 become regarded in the bracket of several millions in just a year?
"It is just good for the journalists - but not good for me," he smiles.
