Aldershot Town striker Marvin Morgan admits that a January move to a Championship club would be too good to refuse, but insists that he is happy to stay with the Shots.
The League Two club turned down two bids from unnamed clubs, thought to be second-tier duo Peterborough United and QPR, for the 27-year-old in December and are bracing themselves for a follow-up pursuit during the current transfer window.
Morgan's career has taken a steep rise in recent years after plying his trade in non-league football and he would jump at the chance to emulate the careers of former peers DJ Campbell and Jermaine Beckford.
"I'm 27 now and I am happy to stay at the club, but sometimes you have to be a bit selfish and grasp any offers that are thrown at you," he told skysports.com.
"Obviously, the club will judge whether they get a fair offer for me, but if a Championship side came in for me then I'd have to consider whether that type of offer would come my way again.
"I hope that the club do look at the offers that come in and if it is a good offer for all parties then hopefully they won't stand in my way because a Championship side would be a great opportunity for me.
"I've always wanted to test myself at that level (Championship) and players that I have played with in non-league have proven themselves higher up. Both DJ Campbell and Jermaine Beckford continue to show what they can do at that level, so I am hungry to follow their example.
"I may be a bit of a late-comer in terms of the professional game, but I've looked after my body and the hunger is there after plying my trade in non-league for so long."
