The former Kidderminster forward will miss the vital last week of the season, following a broken leg suffered last month, but he is hopeful that his team-mates will ensure there will be First Division football at the Hawthorns next season.
"If the speculation doesn`t come from me or the club, it`s not worth listening to," he told West Brom`s official website. "That`s why I never buy a paper. I don`t read papers, because you can never believe what they say, anyway.
"I`ve been linked with that many clubs, and I`ve been going virtually every week most of the time. But I just don`t listen to it. I can`t see anything going on this summer, but it`s up to the club really."
Gary Megson`s side are level on points with Walsall, but their superior goal difference could be enough to avoid relegation, come the close of play on Sunday afternoon.
