Gillingham star Simeon Jackon has told Sky Sports he would relish the chance to play at a higher level.

The Canadian international striker, who inspired the Gills to play-off success last term, has begun the new League One season in great style.

Jackson is already into double figures and is attracting a great deal of interest with a number of Premier League clubs believed to be keeping tabs on his progress.

"When it is in the press about getting a move it does prey on your mind," Jackson told Sky Sports News.

"But I am just getting my head down and getting goals for this club, but obviously I want to play at a higher level and I would grab the opportunity with both hands."

Gills boss Mark Stimson joked that he hopes Jackson may curtail his goal-scoring exploits to put off the visiting scouts.

"Every player at every club has his price, we want him to score goals but not too many so that a bigger club comes in for him! But that is part and parcel of this game," Stimson said.

"His finishing is good, if you see him in training he has that ability."
