Curtis Davies is happy to ignore interest from Arsenal due to his role at West Brom.West Brom stopper Curtis Davies has told Sky Sports News his prominent squad status at The Hawthorns means he is happy to ignore reported interest from Arsenal.
The former Luton Town defender has not even played two full seasons of professional football but his rise in the game has been rapid - to the extent that he was linked with a move to Highbury in January just six months after joining The Baggies.
The Gunners are reputedly keen to snare the gifted England Under-21 international in the summer and Bryan Robson may be forced to brace himself for bids, especially if West Brom suffer relegation.
The loss of Davies would be felt acutely as he has emerged as a key member of the squad and, despite his tender years, has captained the side on a number of occasions.
However, it is for this reason that even if his side are relegated Davies is keen to remain with The Baggies.
"I'm happy here." Davies told Sky Sports News.
"I've been put in a situation where I'm playing every week and actually captained the side.
"Until anyone else tells me otherwise, I'm a West Brom player."
The 20-year-old has emerged as one of the top flight's brightest young defenders, but as yet he is not aware of any interest from Arsene Wenger.
"It is all just rumours as far as I know," Davies added.
"I just take it as a confidence booster that I must be doing well for people to be talking about me like that.
"At the end of the day they are just rumours and I'm happy here at West Brom."
