Gillingham's in-demand striker Simeon Jackson has revealed that he is content to stay with the League One club, should no offers come in for him during the January transfer window.
The Canada international has been linked with a host of clubs, including Premier League outfits Wolves and Aston Villa, after helping the Kent club gain promotion from League Two last season.
Jackson scored the winner in the play-off final at Wembley with a last-gasp header and he told skysports.com that he is not seeking a move away from the Priestfield Stadium.
"I've got another year with the club after this season and I would be more than happy to fulfil that," he said.
"I've felt like I have improved since I joined the club and I just want to continue doing that. I'm just going to keep working hard and hopefully we can get the points that we need in the next couple of weeks and whatever happens in January happens."
The 22-year-old is rated very highly by the Gills, with boss Mark Stimson demanding a seven-figure sum to prise him away from the club and Jackson insists he is fully committed to helping the club progress.
He said: "Sometimes the stories do get to you a little, especially at this time of year, with January just around the corner, but I know that we've got some big games coming up in the next couple of weeks and we don't want to get dragged into the battle that is going on below us.
"I'm just going to get my head down, as I always have done, and see what happens."
