Steven Davis has laughed off talk linking him with a big money move away from Aston Villa in the summer.

The Northern Irish midfielder has built on a promising debut campaign last term to establish himself as a firm favourite with the Villa Park faithful.

Davis has proven in his short time in the top-flight that he has the capabilities and passing range to match all but a few, and his consistent displays have not gone unnoticed across the Premiership.

Bolton have been credited with a firm interest, whilst Manchester United are reported to be monitoring the player as they continue their search for Roy Keane's long-term successor.

However, despite Villa's disappointing season, Davis insists he is more than content in the Midlands and that any transfer talk is very much water off a duck's back.

''I'm more than happy here at Villa Park,'' Davis told the club's official website.

''Someone told me about me being linked with Bolton in the paper but I don't really take much notice of it.

''I'm happy here so it doesn't mean anything. I signed my contract, I'm getting the chance to play so I'm more than happy at Villa.

''The aim is to win something with Villa soon - I'm ambitious and I want to win things, so hopefully it will be with Villa.

''Being linked with other clubs I suppose is part and parcel of football.''
