Michael Kightly has poured cold water on speculation of a possible move to Bolton, saying he is happy at Wolves.
The winger, who has netted seven goals for the league leaders so far this term, has been linked with a possible £5million move to the Reebok Stadium.
Trotters boss Gary Megson has made no secret of his intentions to bolster his squad, with Kightly the latest player linked with a move to the Premier league club in the January transfer window.
But the 22-year-old insists he is happy at Molineux and has no intention of leaving after signing a four-year contract in the summer.
Asked about the rumours of a possible move to Bolton, Kightly told the Express & Star: "It's the first I've heard about it.
"I've said many times that it's nice to be linked with Premier League clubs, because it means I'm doing something right.
"But I'm focused on Wolves. I've said from day one that I'm happy here, I love the club and I love playing for the club."
Dedicated to his future with the Midlands club, Kightly was also keen to heap praise on his team-mates and boss Mick McCarthy.
The youngster says there is no stronger team spirit than that at the league leaders, adding: "The boys are tremendous - unbelievable, and I don't think you'd get that anywhere else.
"I get on well with everyone at the club and I really like it here. I want to get to the Premier League and hopefully it will be with Wolves.
"The gaffer has done wonders at this club and last season when he was getting stick, people didn't realise just how well he's done.
"As far as building a club goes, he's done fantastic."
