Dundee United's Slovakia international keeper Dusan Pernis has admitted it is his dream to play in the Premier League.
The 25-year-old has reportedly been interesting both Fulham and West Ham, who both dispatched scouts to watch him against Hull City.
Pernis is distancing himself from the speculation, although he is flattered that teams in England's top flight are keeping tabs on his progress.
The shot-stopper, who has two caps for his country, is more than happy plying his trade in the SPL but hopes to one day move to England.
"I have heard the rumours but I don't know anything about any offers from those clubs," he told the Daily Record.
"Of course it's great to have those kinds of teams interested in me. And I always said I came to Scotland to move closer to my dream which was to play in the English Premier League.
"But I am young, I'm 25 and I have plenty of time to do that in the future. I am a Dundee United player and happy with that.
"It has also helped me go to the World Cup with my country, which was a fantastic achievement.
"I feel I can continue to become a better goalkeeper here - I do not have to leave."
