Rovers defender and England hopeful Phil Jones is ignoring the speculation of a big summer move and is concentrating on keeping his boyhood club in the division they belong.
Jones has been a revelation over the last few months which has lead to the usual feast of names being linked with his services.
But Phil has got a one track mind and unsurprisingly for a man it is on football.
Jones told The Independent - 'I can't afford to think about any of that, I just need to be concentrating on keeping Blackburn up'
'I tend not to read the papers or listen to what the pundits say about me.
'My mates will tell me they saw me in the newspaper linked to this club and that club, but to be honest it goes in one ear and out the other.'
Jones did however compliment Arsenal on their style of football but praised the league in general for the variety of challenges.
Jones added - 'I think Arsenal play the prettiest football in the Premier League.
'Obviously money helps. Having more money allows you to play in a certain way, but that's the beauty of the Premier League - there are so many different styles.
'You know it's not easy for Arsenal to go to Stoke and win a game there anymore.
'It's not knocking anyone's style, it's just the nature of the Premier League and that's why everyone loves it.'
