Shay Given has insisted he is not worried by speculation linking Jussi Jaaskelainen with a move to Newcastle.
Jaaskelainen's agent Peter Harrison told skysports.com last week that he would be interested in a move to Newcastle.
The Bolton goalkeeper's contract expires next summer and reports suggest his former manager Sam Allardyce could be keen to work with him again at St James' Park.
Given has faced competition for his place from Steve Harper this season and he maintains he would not feel threatened by Jaaskelainen.
"I am sure there are a lot of goalkeepers' agents who would like their player to come to Newcastle," Given told the Irish Independent.
"But Jaaskelainen's contract is up in the summer and with him knowing Sam Allardyce from Bolton, people will put two and two together.
"I don't know what the manager's thinking. I go out and play for Newcastle as best I can and I hope I've proved I'm decent at what I'm do."
Meanwhile, Given believes Mike Ashley's takeover will allow Newcastle to compete with the top Premier League clubs.
He said: "Man United won the league and went and spent £80million. Where does that put Newcastle, who finished 13th?
"It will take time but having Mike Ashley with his financial power means we should be going in the right direction."
