Fletcher shrugs off transfer talk

Hibs striker Steven Fletcher
Real Madrid allegedly showed interest in luring Fletcher to Spain

Hibernian striker Steven Fletcher is remaining focused despite increasing speculation linking him with a move away from Easter Road.

Assistant manager Donald Park this week admitted that it was only a matter of time before Fletcher moved on to a more high-profile club.

But the 21-year-old said: "Is there transfer talk? I just get on with it, it's part and parcel of football.

"It's nice to know teams are looking at you, but I'm still a Hibs player."

There were reports during the summer that Real Madrid were among Fletcher's possible suitors.

And the Scotland striker's spectacular goal in Saturday's 4-1 victory over Motherwell will have impressed his admirers further.

"If people want to come in and make bids, it's up to the club to accept that, and then it's down to me whether I want to go or not," he said.

Fletcher is delighted at his current form with the Edinburgh club but admits he has high ambitions.

"Obviously I just want to play at the highest level, so if somebody came in and put an offer in we'd just have to see what the club do," he said.

"I'm enjoying my football just now and scoring goals, which is always a bonus, so I'm delighted here."
