Cork City striker Roy O'Donovan admits his future is not in his own hands.
Cork City striker Roy O'Donovan admits it has been flattering to be linked with a host of Championship clubs.
Hull City are reportedly leading the chase to sign O'Donovan, but other sides such as Wolves and Southend are also believed to be interested.
O'Donovan is out of contract in November and admits his future is not in his hands as he has yet to be offered a new deal by Cork.
"I'd be lying if I said I wasn't flattered to be linked with different clubs," O'Donovan told the Hull Daily Mail.
"To me, that was a sign that I was doing something right.
"I'm just happy to say what will be, will be. The decision is not in my hands.
"The club own me. It's their choice if they want to sell."
Hull boss Phil Brown has a good scouting network in Ireland and has been tipped to make another bid for O'Donovan in the summer.
However, O'Donovan is wary about returning to England following an unhappy spell with Coventry earlier in his career.
"Having been to England before, and seen the pitfalls, I know that everything isn't a bed of roses over there," he explained.
"I'm Cork through and through and think it is a great honour for me to represent my country."
