Everton midfielder Tim Cahill has heard it all before when it comes to transfer speculation during the summer months.
The Australian international, who is about to start an eighth season with the Toffees, has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park on a number of occasions in the past.
However, it's Cahill's teammates who have been the subject of transfer talk during the window, with Phil Jagielka, Jack Rodwell and Marouane Fellaini just three names mentioned with regards to a possible Goodison Park exit.
"I never focus on speculation and I never invite it. If a club wants you they will come and buy you. If they don't want you, they don't want you," said the 31-year-old.
"The best thing about this club is the relationship with the manager. We stay honest by him, and he stays honest by us."
Finances are known to be tight for manager David Moyes on Merseyside, with limited funds available for the Scot to bring transfer targets to the club.
Cahill isn't concerned by the situation though, and is focused on repaying both the manager and fans who have supported him so well at the club since his move from Millwall.
"We let everyone else deal with the speculation and we just concentrate on our football. We have long-term contracts and we are paid to play," he continued.
"I have learned over the years that it is important to have respect for the football club, because of how much the fans and the club puts into us."
