Jackson Martinez admits he is flattered to be linked with a move to Liverpool, although he is committed to honouring his contract with Jaguares.

The 25-year-old Colombian has scored five times in 10 games for his country, and continues to impress in the Mexican Primera División with his current employers.

It was reported on Saturday that Liverpool had opened talks with Jaguares, with the hope of bringing Martinez to Anfield during the transfer window.

And Martinez is honoured to hear of the interest from Kenny Dalglish, although is not getting distracted by a potential move to Liverpool.

"For me it is a joy whenever I see news about teams interested in me, but for now I have a contract with Jaguares," he said.

"Things have their time and I've always said, since I got here, that I'll only leave when there was a clear opportunity to do so.

"Therefore, only God knows when I leave."
