Scott Hogan is completely unfazed by reports linking him with a move away from Brentford but revealed he would only leave for a Championship club if the Bees accepted an offer.
Premier League side West Bromwich Albion and second tier duo Reading and Norwich have been reportedly linked with a transfer for the Bees striker.
Hogan has never hidden his desire to play Premier League football and were a top flight club to come in for him, the striker would be keen on a move.
And in typical no nonsense style, the striker brushed off talk about his future and is doing his best to keep his head down and do his talking on the pitch.
He told GetWestLondon : “I don’t read it. I get told it. It’s no bother to me. If someone is getting linked with someone we’re doing well.
“I don’t want to be in the Championship long – I want to play in the Premier League.
“I think the teams I’ve been linked with are Championship teams. I don’t want to play Championship football all my career.
“I’ve seen those teams. Who knows what’s going to happen? It’s not up to me – it’s up to Brentford. I wouldn’t leave for a Championship club unless Brentford do it. That’s not my problem.
“Speculation is part and parcel of football and it’s for when people are doing well. I didn’t know anything about it.
“Whatever happens. If people want to talk they can. It doesn’t bother me. People can make stories up and they can get on social media and tweet me – I’m not going to reply to it.
“People like to talk – it’s part of football and we have to get on with it.”
