Southampton star Adam Lallana is refusing to get carried away with speculation surrounding his future, amid reported interest from Manchester United, and says he is happy with life at the Saints.
The 25-year-old has flourished at St Mary's this season, and was yesterday announced on the shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award, highlighting how well he has performed during the campaign.
And with a growing reputation, the midfielder continues to be linked with a move to Manchester United, however Lallana is refusing to get drawn into the hype, and remains fully committed to Southampton.
"Being linked with bigger clubs is obviously a good thing. It just proves that the club are doing something right, recruiting good players, playing good football, he told the Daily Star.
"I've always been committed to Southampton, my contact has never run down. I've always been happy here."
Lallana has been one of the Premier League's star performers this season, netting 10 goals and has 7 assists, form that has propelled him into the forefront of Roy Hodgson's plans for the World Cup in June.
Although expected to earn a place in the 23-man England squad, Lallana remains calm about his chances and believes it would not be a surprise if he was overlooked in the summer.
"No way. I've only won three caps. It would be silly to think that, wouldn't it?
"I just want to keep working hard and then hopefully I can keep playing well and get into Roy Hodgson's squad."
Southampton travel to Aston Villa later today, looking to maintain eighth spot in the table.
