Aldershot's in-demand striker Marvin Morgan insists he is more than happy to stay at the club after a bid was rejected from Wycombe Wanderers on deadline day.
The Chairboys, managed by former Shots boss Gary Waddock, made a joint bid for Morgan and team-mate Scott Donnelly, which was refused.
However, reports have claimed that the League One strugglers made an improved offer for Donnelly and will look to complete a move once the loan window opens next week.
No further offers were placed, though, for Morgan, who was also wanted by Championship outfit Peterborough, and the pacey striker is adamant that he is in no rush to leave.
"The only offer that I am aware of was the one from Wycombe and that was turned down, plus the Peterborough bid which was rejected a few weeks ago," Morgan told skysports.com.
"I am obviously flattered to be wanted by those two clubs, but at the same time I am happy to be at Aldershot and I'm in no rush to leave the club."
In the past, Morgan has stated that a move to Wycombe may not be the best option, as the Chairboys stare relegation to League Two in the face, while the Shots compete for a play-off place, but he now insists that he would have considered it if Aldershot had accepted an offer.
He added: "Football can change very quickly and if the club had accepted an offer from Wycombe then I would have to take a look at it because it could be a good move for all parties.
"However, it was rejected, so that is where the communication between the two clubs finished.
"They are struggling at the moment, but like I say it only takes a couple of wins to haul them out of trouble."
