Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Cameron John refuses to pay attention to transfer speculation, he told The Doncaster Free Press.
John is currently on loan at Doncaster Rovers. But he has been linked with a Wolves exit in January. This report mentions that Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Middlesbrough are all keen on the young defender.
The 20-year-old joined Doncaster in the summer and has since played nine times. He has scored twice but an ankle injury kept him out for more than two months. He is now back fit and in the line-up.
John was asked about his future but he remained coy. The young Londoner just wants to focus on his development at The Keepmoat Stadium.
John on his future
Addressing the transfer rumours, John said (via The Doncaster Free Press): “I don’t take any notice. Personally, that’s nothing for me to get involved with. I’m just here to play football at the end of the day so I can’t be worrying about outside noise.
“I’ve just got to focus on my performances on the pitch. I’ve heard about it, people have told me, and it’s nice to hear. But in the present, I’m here to play games, to play football and hopefully I just keep performing well. Whatever happens in January or in the summer, that’s what happens.”
John is on a season-long loan at Doncaster and that should be his priority. He will be aiming to get his temporary club into the play-offs and if he performs well over the course of the season, he can start to think about his next steps.
Wolves are currently short in the centre-back department so John might be tempted to stay there. But there are some other exciting opportunities for him if he wants a new challenge.
