Motherwell midfielder Alan Campbell says his contract situation isn’t playing on his mind and he’s fully focused on this weekend’s Lanarkshire derby.

The Fir Park side knocked back offers for Campbell in January, according to manager Graham Alexander, and the 22-year-old is likely to be in demand with his current deal due to expire in the summer.

Campbell, however, says he isn’t being distracted by pondering his future and is only thinking about the next game, when Hamilton Accies visit.

“I am not really bothering about that just now,” he said.

“My focus is just playing football. I just love playing football and I am enjoying my football and I am just looking forward to the weekend and hopefully keep putting performances in and keep getting wins.

“There is no point in thinking about what’s going to happen, you have to just focus on the here and now.

“I have always been like that, always just focused on the next game and make sure I give my all for the team and get results for this club.”

The Scotland under-21 player insists he keeps his mind on improving as a player and making small gains to reach his personal targets.

“I have carried on doing what I do, come in, work hard and try to improve myself,” he said.

“I have always kept my head down, keep grafting away and try to do my bit. Any success comes from that and I will keep doing that.

“I just want to be the best player I can be and if that is coming in a wee bit earlier and staying a bit later I will do that.

“I can definitely feel the improvement over the years. I have been able to establish myself in the team and that has been the main thing.

“When I was younger I was just trying to get an appearance and I have over 100 games now.

“Every season you look at your performances and see what small percentage you can add to become better and I will just try to keep doing that.
