Charlie Austin is thriving on the transfer speculation surrounding his future, according to Swindon boss Danny Wilson.
The Robins boss has promised Town will "fight tooth and nail" to keep hold of the 21-year-old striker, yet he acknowledges that every player has a price and if a sizeable bid was made then it would be difficult to say no.
Despite the two parties discussing terms over a new contract at the County Ground, the rumour mill has firmly kicked into gear ahead of the January window with a host of clubs again linked to Austin's services.
Championship side Hull last week had a bid rejected and Wilson believes the hot-shot youngster, who has 15 goals in 21 games this season, is only gaining confidence from all the attention.
"I don't think it's distracting to him, I think it serves to push him forward and push him on," he told the club's official website. "He gets a little bit of a kick from it quite honestly. It's good that his confidence is sky high at the moment, so no I don't think it is a distraction."
Meanwhile, Swindon's home League One clash against Tranmere has been rearranged for Tuesday January 25 after the original meeting earlier this month was postponed due to heavy snowfall.
