    Derry City wideman James McLean has batted away rumours linking him with a move to Blackpool.

    The Seasiders are understood to be interested in bringing the 22-year-old to England as they battle to regain their Premier League place following their recent relegation.

    Ex-Northern Ireland Under-21 international McLean acknowledged he would like an opportunity over the water, but says it is purely speculation at the moment.

    He said: "There have been quite a few rumours flying around over recent weeks regarding my future, but no one has said anything to me officially. Until that becomes the case, I want to concentrate on improving and playing well for Derry

    "Every player wants to improve and play at the highest level possible and I'm no different.

    "I feel I've been playing well this season in the Premier Division which was always going to be a test for me having come through the First Division the previous season.

    "Obviously, I'm still learning and still trying to improve my game and should an offer come in for me from a good club, then I would certainly sit up, take advice on the matter and move on.

    "I've heard stories about scouts watching me from West Ham, Reading and Burnley among others, but I've heard nothing. I've read my name associated with some of those clubs on the internet, but I've been told nothing and, as I've said, until I do, I will continue trying to improve with Derry City."
