Aldershot striker Danny Hylton has told skysports.com he is paying no attention to transfer speculation as he bids to create history against Manchester United.
The League Two outfit are preparing to host the reigning Premier League champions at the Recreation Ground on Tuesday night in the fourth round of the Carling Cup.
Dean Holdsworth's Aldershot are hoping to increase the misery on United, who were humiliated in the Manchester derby at the weekend, and Hylton will be one of the most dangerous weapons.
The forward has scored 10 goals in 17 games to spark reports a number of clubs are watching the 22-year-old, but he is only concentrating on shooting downing Sir Alex Ferguson's United.
Hylton, who signed a one-year contract extension in February, told skysports.com: "I am flattered by rumours of interest from leagues higher up and it has always been an ambition to play at a higher level.
"But I am just focused on doing my best for Aldershot.
"I love Aldershot. I have been there since I was 16 and I will continue to give my all to them.
"I am really enjoying my football and I feel the manager has given me a new lease of life."
Hylton hopes Aldershot can benefit from the role of underdogs against United as they aim to achieve a significant giant-killing.
"The whole team is buzzing about the game," he said. "There's no pressure on us and it's going to be a great day for the fans.
"Whatever team they put out will be packed with quality, but we will just try and play our own game.
"We're going to give it our all to cause a massive upset and create a bit of history."
