Crewe striker Luke Varney has tried to play down speculation about his future, insisting he wants to concentrate on scoring goals for the League One side.
The 24-year-old has been earmarked as a future star at Alex and scored against Manchester United in Wednesday's Carling Cup 2-1 defeat.
But, having only signed a new deal last month, he told BBC Radio Stoke: "The rumours won't affect my performances.
"I just want to be consistent here. That's what gets you recognised."
