Notts County midfielder Ben Davies has expressed his desire to play in the Championship amid interest from Derby.
However, the 29-year-old insists he will not try to force a move away from Meadow Lane. Notts have turned down a bid from Derby for Davies, who has two years remaining on his contract.
He told the Nottingham Post: "The Championship is the place I want to be and I believe that myself and most of the lads here can play in the Championship. There is no reason we can't be there ourselves next season."
He added: "It is flattering because Derby are a massive club but I am not going to be banging on the manager's door asking for a move. No-one has said anything to me about it, so I will keep my head down and focus on playing for Notts and try to do my best."
