Curtis Davies says stories suggesting he will quit West Brom do not bother him.
Curtis Davies says he is happy at West Bromwich Albion despite being linked with a move away.
It is understood that his eye-catching performances at The Hawthorns have drawn admiring glances from Arsenal scouts and that The Gunners launched a January transfer bid for him.
Davies says he is perfectly content with life in West Bromwich, however, and feels that the speculation is designed to unsettle him.
"There are always little whispers but it was the same when I was at Luton with teams throwing their names in the hat trying to unsettle me.
"I'm happy at Albion. I've only been here seven months so it's ridiculous that people are trying to nick me already. I don't know if there is any truth behind it and there are a lot of rumours.
"I'm just happy to play my football and I want to help us get away from the bottom three for once and for all. We've had a few chances to do that but it hasn't quite happened for us."
But Davies conceded: "If we were to get relegated, you don't know what the club might do. It's down to what the club's ambitions are.
"They might keep me to help get us back up into The Premiership or, if we stay up, keep me and try to push on.
"It's out of my hands but I'm happy here and I want to give everything to West Brom which is the main thing."
