Michael Raynes has stated he remained focused on his football at Stockport.Michael Raynes has stated he remained focused on his football after being linked with West Brom at the start of the season.
Stockport's highly-rated defender was strongly tipped to join The Baggies in the summer, but a move never materialised.
While Raynes is flattered at being linked with the Premiership outfit, he just wanted to keep up his form for The Hatters by brushing off the speculation.
Stockport are currently languishing near the foot of the table after five games without a a win and Raynes is keen to turn their fortunes around.
"I just took all the interest as a compliment to the way I played last season really," explained Raynes.
"I didn't expect anything and I just wanted to keep my head down, get back from my injury and help County get some results. That's what I'll be concentrating on now.
"The team is the most important thing and we haven't been winning and we know we've got to do better."
