Tom Soares has admitted he is flattered to be linked with a move to the Premier League, but insists he is fully committed to Crystal Palace.

The England Under 21 international has been in impressive form of late, scoring three goals in his previous five Championship games.

His performances have sparked rumours that Blackburn Rovers are lining up a summer move for the midfielder.

However Soares has played down the reports, outlining his focus on ensuring Palace - currently sixth - secure promotion to the top flight.

Confident

"Obviously it's brilliant when you hear that Premier League clubs are interested in you - but I just want to concentrate on Palace," he told the Croydon Advertiser.

"If I keep working hard things will take care of themselves - but first things first, I want to help Palace get promoted.

"I'm confident I've got what it takes to be a Premier League player - but this is where I want to be at the moment."
