The Leighton Baines rumoured transfer from Everton to Manchester United just doesn't seem to be disappearing.
But while many players would be battering the door down to demand a move to Manchester United once their agent had shown them the pound signs, you don't get that impression from the Everton left back.
Manchester United isn't the first big club he's been linked with, granted Bayern Munich, although Champions League runners-up are not quite the same level as United, Baines didn't appear to be too interested in moving to them and it would seem he has remained level headed about this link as well.
'The United link is flattering, There is no harm in people talking about it because it is a great club. But I'm at a great club as well, a club that I love.' he told various media types recently.
He continued: 'Would it be hard to turn United down? I'm not letting my focus shift to that while I am in (the England) camp. I'm focused on what I'm doing at the moment.
'Would it be hard to leave Everton? Yes, obviously. You know what it means. I've been there for five years myself but also know first-hand what it means to a lot of people so, yes it would be.'
So no real clues there as to any possible moves, but plenty of fuel to add to the fire.
