Darren Dods has rubbished speculation he is keen to quit Dundee United in search of first-team football.
Former club Inverness Caledonian Thistle had been sniffing around their former player's services after he fell out of favour at Tannadice.
However, the 33-year-old is happy at United and willing to fight for his place in Craig Levein's squad.
"When Inverness saw I wasn't in the team they got in touch with the manager to see if I was available but he wanted to keep me," Dods told the Daily Record.
"That suits me because I am happy here and want to fight for my place in the team.
"I love it at Dundee United. I get on well with the boys and think things are going to improve here.
"The gaffer has built a big squad to get competition for places because that keeps all of us on our toes. It's good for the club and the players because it keeps standards high."
