Nikola Zigic is paying no attention to transfer speculation following his fine start in Spain.
Racing Santander striker Nikola Zigic insists he is paying no attention to transfer speculation following his fine start to life in Spain.
The towering Serbian hit-man, who stands 6ft 8in tall, joined Racing in the summer from Crvena Zvezda and has made a superb start to life in Spain.
He already has five league goals to his name and has played a part in 12 of the 13 goals Racing have managed this season.
His displays have caught the eye of teams across La Liga, and Europe as a whole, with Valencia amongst the sides reported to be monitoring his progress.
However, Zigic - who was reported to be a target for Portsmouth last summer - has brushed off the speculation surrounding his future and insists he is concentrating solely on maintaining his form for his Cantabrian employers.
"I do not want to talk about my future, it's still very early," he stated.
"Right now I am focused on Racing and I don't want to distract myself.
"I know I am having a good season, but I don't want to obsess solely about scoring goals.
"The other day I laid on the pass that earned us a penalty and that is also important in helping us win points."
