Paul Mullin insists he is happy to stay at Accrington Stanley after the club turned down a bid from Rochdale.
The 34-year-old was the subject of a £50,000 offer from Rochdale last week with a view to moving to Spotland in January.
Accrington rejected the approach from their League Two rivals and Mullin has no problems with his current club's decision.
And, though the striker is keen to play at a higher level, he has stressed that he is happy to stay with John Coleman's Stanley side.
"It's flattering to be linked with other clubs because it means I'm doing something right, but it's the club's decision," Mullin told the Lancashire Telegraph.
"No-one's spoken to me about it, so I presume they have just turned it down flat.
"It's out of my hands. I'm happy at Accrington. I've been here a long time.
"I am ambitious, I do want to progress and I do want to try to get into the league above if I can, coming to my age with not many years left.
"But it's the club's decision, not mine. Whatever happens, I'd always give my best on the pitch. That will never change."
