Rangers defender Filip Helander has batted away rumours that he could be subject of a bid from an English Premier League club in the summer.
Both Aston Villa and Leicester are believed to be keeping tabs on the Swedish international but, when asked about his future in a recent interview, the centre-back said he is concentrating on his football:
“It’s just speculation. I feel good here and I have two years left on my contract here. That’s really the only thing I think about. I want to continue to perform well at Rangers and then hope to be able to join the European Championships this summer. This is where my focus lies.”
Although Helander doesn’t completely rule out leaving Ibrox, he confirms he is happy to stay with the Light Blues, so there is no chance of him agitating for a move at the end of the season.
However, previous reports have suggested that the Gers would not be completely against selling the 27-year-old if they received a good enough offer for the centre-back.
It was claimed last month that a bid in excess of £6m for Helander may well be accepted by Rangers. However, considering he has never been on the losing side for the Scottish club in a league game, it would be surprising if manager Steven Gerrard was willing to let him go.
