Due to his form for the League One side John, 20, has been linked with a switch to Championship side Middlesbrough and Wolves’ Premier League rivals Leicester City and Crystal Palace.

The defender is under contract at Wolves until the summer of 2020 with the club having an option to extend that a further year.

But John is just focused on his season long loan spell at the Keepmoat Stadium.

He said: “I don’t take any notice (of rumours).

“Personally, that’s nothing for me to get involved with.

“I’m just here to play football at the end of the day so I can’t be worrying about outside noise.

“I’ve just got to focus on my performances on the pitch.

“I’ve heard about it, people have told me, and it’s nice to hear.


“But in the present I’m here to play games, to play football and hopefully I just keep performing well.

“Whatever happens in January or in the summer, that’s what happens.

“But I’m here for the season so I’m just looking forward to that and hopefully just doing well here.”

The defender has just returned to Darren Moore’s starting XI after picking up an ankle injury in September.


His fellow loan star Niall Ennis is also on his way back from a hamstring injury.

The forward returned to Compton Park for treatment after the October injury but he is back at the Keepmoat.

n Wolves under-23s had to settle for a draw in their Premier League 2 fixture with Brighton last night.

Benny Ashley-Seal gave Wolves the lead after just three minutes at Compton when he fired home a cross from Raphael Nya. It was his 12th goal of the campaign.

Peter Gwargis levelled for the Seagulls 10 minutes into the second half before Ahsley-Seal was denied by the keeper.

Jordan Graham impressed for Wolves playing in a front and was close to creating a second for Dion Sanderson, who just failed to reach his cross.
