Charlie Adam has admitted he is flattered to be linked with big clubs but is staying focused on trying to secure Blackpool's Premier League status.
The midfielder's future provided one of the stories of the January transfer window as the likes of Liverpool and Tottenham tried to prise him away from Bloomfield Road.
The Seasiders managed to keep Adam despite his desire to leave but speculation has already started to resurface about what might happen in the summer, with Manchester United also thought to be interested.
Adam maintains that he is trying to ignore the transfer talk as he concentrates on Blackpool's battle to beat the drop.
He said: "It's a privilege to be linked with these types of clubs but it's not just about me, it's about this club and my team-mates as well.
"My club-mates have helped me and they've done well as well."
Out of my hands
Former Rangers youngster Adam, whose contract expires at the end of next season, has stressed that he knows 'nothing' about his future beyond May.
"I'm not concentrating on my future," the 25-year-old added.
"I'm just worrying about my next eight games for my club and trying to keep Blackpool in the league because that's been the focus and that's always been the focus.
"We'll see what happens, that's out of my hands, and I'll look forward to the next eight games and try to play as well as I can."
Blackpool made a stunning start to life in the Premier League but have slipped towards trouble more recently and are currently just a point above the drop zone.
Teams that go into freefall are often those which ultimately get relegated but Adam, who is also a Premier League rookie, said: "We're just focused on each game as it comes and playing the way we know we can.
"At the end of the day, if we're good enough, we'll stay in the league. The table never lies."
Ian Holloway's men could find themselves in the bottom three when they next take to the field at Fulham on Sunday, with all their relegation rivals playing the day before.
Adam said: "Every game's huge for us.
"From the start of the season right to the end, it's a big game.
"So we'll look forward to it and try to get as many points as we can from now until the end of the season and hopefully it's good enough to stay in the league."
