The 24-year-old Dutchman, who was signed from Vitesse Arnhem 18 months ago, has had to contend with rumours linking various left-backs with United as manager David Moyes looks to strengthen his squad.
But following his solid performance in Sunday's 2-1 reverse to Swansea in the FA Cup, Buttner hopes he has proven he is an able deputy for Patrice Evra.
"If people talk about other players in my position, I don't care," Buttner said. "I just want to play my game and show that I can handle the level.
"I know there are some clubs that want me but I'm happy here and want to play for United so I focus 100 per cent on here.
"I don't want to leave. I want to fight for my place. I am still young and I know what I can do. I just have to wait for my chances and take them."
