West Ham defender Issa Diop has spoken out to distance himself from the latest transfer speculation regarding his immediate future.

The French defender has been linked with a move to clubs such as Tottenham and Manchester United in recent weeks, despite appearing to be settled at West Ham with whom he has spent the last 18 months.

And speaking in an interview with Foot Mercato, the 23-year-old says he is not allowing himself to be sidetracked by any transfer window rumours.

It's business as usual for Issa Diop

"I am not in negotiations [with any other club] I don't care to know which clubs are interested in me," he said. "So for me, nothing really changes.

"Most of the time, it is friends of mine sending me screenshots to say to me: 'Issa, Look.' I am not even the person who finds out first. Aside from that, that is the game of the transfer window, something things are true, some things are false.

"So I don't pay too much attention to it. Honestly, I don't really give a shit about what is in the newspapers. I am not at all concentrated on that. It doesn't enter my thinking at all.

"I leave people who are responsible to deal with that side. I just focus on football."
