Watford midfielder Lee Williamson has refused to dwell on speculation linking him with a move to Premier League side Fulham and is happy to stay at Vicarage Road.

The former Rotherham United man impressed as the Hornets gave Chelsea a scare in the FA Cup at the weekend but he is unsure as to where the Fulham rumour originated from.

"I'm not too sure where it came from really, but I'm in regular contact with my agent and I just let him carry on with his work and keep my head down to focus on the job at hand here," Williamson told skysports.com.

"Whether someone did come in for me or not I'm not sure, but I'm still a Watford player and the window is shut now, so I'll just continue to plug away for the cause here."

The Hornets are focussing on their fight to retain Championship status, as they currently occupy a place in the relegation zone and Williamson is confident they can dig themselves out of trouble.

"It has been a funny season for us, with the new gaffer and the new board coming in, but with what the gaffer is doing with us at the moment I'm positive we will stay up this season," he added.

"He has made changes to the side and training is completely different now.

"He has made long-term changes so that the club can move forward instead of looking over our shoulders like this season. It will be a hard time to keep the club in this division, but we feel we are up for the challenge."
