Everton youngster Jack Rodwell has played down reports linking him with a move away from Everton this summer.

Reports have suggested that a multitude of high profile clubs have lined up a move for the highly-rated midfielder for next season.

However, Rodwell himself insists he does not pay any attention to the rumours and that he is happy at Goodison Park.

"You can´t really pay that [the transfer rumours] any attention, you can´t let off-the-field antics affect you on the pitch so you just have to have to concentrate on your own game,".

Asked if it was hard to ignore the transfer rumours, Rodwell said: "No not at all. As long as you have got the right people around, which I have, it is easy to put to the back of your mind.

"Obviously it´s flattering, but like I said I just put it to the back of my mind and I am playing for Everton Football Club and I will always give 100 per cent for them.
