'I don't take any notice of anything that goes on until the end of the season.

'My job at the end of the day is at Colchester United and I have to do my job.

'Whatever goes on between the club and other clubs, I don't know anything about,' he added.

'Personally, I have not heard anything about it.

'At the end of the season we will sit down and whatever happens will happen but I don't know.'

The 22-year-old went on: 'I want to be saying I want to be in the new stadium next year and playing for Colchester United'.

'We have a new stadium next year and I want to be the first goalie to play in that stadium.

'It is history that we will be making next year and I want to be a part of it.'
