Dorrans: Staying focused
Graham Dorrans insists he is focused on seeing West Brom into the Premier League despite talk of a big money move.
The 22-year-old midfielder has scored in the Baggies' last two games, bumping his tally for the season to an impressive 15.
His displays this term have brought about interest from a number of high-profile clubs, but he insists he is not fazed by the speculation.
Instead, Dorrans says his sole focus is on helping his side gain promotion to the top flight of English football.
The Scotland international insists he is unaffected by media rumours amidst reports that no less than five top-flight sides are monitoring his performances, including the likes of Arsenal and Everton.
"The speculation doesn't really affect me," he said. "I am playing for Albion and when I go out on the field that is all I am concentrating on.
"It is nice when you hear clubs are looking at you but I have got business to do here and I am looking to get Albion back into the Premier League.
"That is what everyone will be focused on until we get over that finishing line."
Baggies boss Roberto Di Matteo admits he has a job on his hands in keeping Dorrans at the club.
"It is a natural evolvement in the football industry that big clubs are going to come and look for the best talents in the club and try to sign them.
"Everyone has their price."
