Dutch star Daley Blind has refused to discuss his future amid claims in Holland that Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund has expressed an interest in him.
The 24-year-old has emerged as first-choice left-back under Louis van Gaal, although he spent most of Ajax's recent campaign as a holding midfielder.
Blind starred in the Dutch's brilliant 5-1 win over world champions Spain in their opening game in Brazil, as he created two goals - including the crucial equaliser for Robin van Persie.
Blind is one of a number of players within the Dutch camp attracting interest, but he has refused to even think about his future whilst he is in Brazil.
Blind told NOS: "I entirely close out all that reports. I am now here at the Dutch national team and that is where I want to focus myself on."
It is believed that Blind will revert to a midfield role against Australia as Holland look set to switch to a four-man defence, which will then see Bruno Indi Martins moving to left-back.
