Manchester United striker Louis Saha has played down speculation linking him with a move away from Old Trafford, insisting he is focused on regaining his fitness.
Saha's future has been the subject of intense speculation this summer with both Bolton and Roma rumoured to be interested in securing his services.
The Frenchman has seen his progress at United hampered by a series of injury problems since joining the club from Fulham in January 2004.
Saha started only five Premier League games last season and the 29-year-old has been working hard over the summer as he looks to prove his worth to Sir Alex Ferguson.
"I am a football player, and I could not play so far. Today, only the pitch matters to me," Saha told France Football.
"I have worked all summer long. There were facilities close to my home so I have worked with a specific program. I know what I want - to be fit for resumption.
"I am under contract at Manchester until 2010. Moreover the coach didn't say anything to me yet, neither about a transfer or a loan.
"I don't hide anything. I tell it again: I have to play before thinking about anything else.
"I forecast nothing before knowing what will happen for me."
