Newcastle goalkeeper Mark Birighitti says reports top-flight English clubs have been watching him are flattering, but he's not going to get ahead of himself.
According to The West Australian newspaper, English Premier League outfits Newcastle United and Bournemouth are keeping tabs on the 24-year-old as both look for a back-up keeper.
But as the January transfer window looms, Birighitti said he had heard nothing himself.
"That's the first that I know. I read the comment in the paper," Birighitti said.
"It's just all rumours. I haven't heard anything about it.
"I'm just focusing on doing well and putting in good performances for the club.
"What's meant to be will be, but I'm in a real good space at the moment."
While insisting he's enjoying his football at Hunter Stadium, Birighitti says oif the reports are correct it is a good feeling to attract the interest of such big clubs.
It would be no surprise if the former Adelaide United custodian is catching the eye of overseas suitors, having enjoyed a rich vein of form for the Jets this season.
But he was wary of allowing his head to wander from his game at Hunter Stadium, as he did 18 months ago when he trialled with Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen.
Birighitti's form dipped around the same time he all-but sealed a move to Germany, only for the deal to collapse with the sacking of manager Sami Hyypia.
"I went through a similar situation a couple of years ago in Germany at Leverkusen," said Birighitti, who has also completed a loan spell with Italian Serie B side AS Varese.
"I'd already had my mind on moving overseas and it affected my performances here.
"I've matured a lot as a person and as a goalkeeper and I don't want that to happen again."
