Christophe Berra has distanced himself from reports linking him with a move to reigning Scottish Premier League champions Rangers.
The former Hearts centre-half has spent the last two-and-a-half years in England with Wolves, having arrived at Molineux in a £2.3million deal back in January 2009.
Since then he has become a mainstay in Mick McCarthy's side and has clocked up 65 Premier League appearances in the last two seasons.
Having proven himself to be a more than capable performer at that level, and with two years still to run on his current contract, Berra sees no reason why he would want to take on a new challenge.
He admits to being flattered by the speculation linking him with Rangers, but believes his ongoing development will be better served at Wolves.
The 25-year-old Scotland international told the Express and Star: "I read it in the papers and Rangers are a massive club with a huge fanbase, you can never say you'd say no to them.
"But I'm enjoying life in England at Wolves and the Premier League is the place to be in to prove yourself - I'm improving as a player here.
"I've played 60-odd games in the Premier League, so I'd like to think my value has gone up.
"The SPL is going through a wee dip, Scottish football is in the doldrums right now and clubs can't afford to pay big transfer fees.
"It's just rumours and I'm not really paying much attention to it."
