Peterborough's in-demand winger George Boyd insists that he is happy to stay with the Championship outfit beyond the current transfer window.
The Scotland B international was the subject of two failed bids from Burnley earlier this month, but the Clarets' interest evaporated after signing Keith Treacy from Preston.
However, Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony promised both Boyd and keeper Joe Lewis that they could leave the club this summer should their valuation be met.
The 25-year-old netted his second goal of the new season with a consolation effort in their 2-1 defeat at Blackpool on Sunday, but he told skysports.com that he is in no rush to leave London Road.
"I'm not sure to be honest whether I'll still be here after the transfer window has closed because it all comes down to the chairman and whether a club comes in for me with the figure he is looking for.
"Until that time comes I will continue to do my best for Peterborough and give 100 per cent.
"I've always enjoyed my football here and the gaffer here brings the best out of me, plus the way that we are playing suits my game, so I'm more than happy here at the moment."
A Kevin Phillips double inflicted Peterborough's first defeat of the season at the weekend, but Boyd insists that lessons have been learnt from the Bloomfield Road contest.
He said: "We played well against Blackpool, but they were very clinical with the chances that they created and that has been the main difference at this level.
"We've learned our lessons from it though and can hopefully take it on board for the rest of the season.
"We've definitely found that being clinical at both ends is so important in this division because a lot of clubs in the Championship only need one good chance to score and ultimately take control of the game.
"When the chances do come our way we need to put them away to give ourselves a chance of competing this year."
