thumbnail Hello,

Youngster claims he pays no attention to transfer rumours, despite reports of interest from Premier League leaders, but did admit he was 'flattered' with the link

Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell has insisted he is happy at the club and has distanced himself from any rumours regarding a move to Manchester United.

United have been linked with a move for the England Under-21 international but Rodwell claims he just wants to concentrate on playing for the Toffees.

He told Sky Sports: "You can't really pay that [the transfer rumours] any attention, you can't let off-the-field antics affect you on the pitch so you just have to have to concentrate on your own game.

"As long as you have got the right people around, which I have, it is easy to put to the back of your mind.

"Obviously it's flattering, but like I said I just put it to the back of my mind and I am playing for Everton Football Club and I will always give 100 per cent for them.

"I am an Everton footballer and I enjoy playing for Everton so I am happy to do that."
