SCOTLAND striker Oli McBurnie admits he is 'flattered' after Sheffield United saw a £15 million bid for his services kicked out by Swansea.

However, the 23-year-old has vowed that his head will not be turned by the interest.

The Blades are keen to bolster their attacking options ahead of their return to the English Premier League and have identified McBurnie, who notched 24 goals for the Swans last term, as their top target.

United have had one megabucks bid for the marksman rejected and the Welsh side are reportedly asking for more than £20 million.

That would make McBurnie the most expensive Scottish player in history.

And he said: "Of course it's flattering and to get attention from clubs like that means you must be doing something right

"But it's out of my hands at the moment. The clubs will speak about that. It is for people well above my pay grade to talk about - and I'll just get on with playing the football.

"I'm happy playing with the boys, happy with the new manager [Steve Cooper] that has come in - and I let other people get on with everything else."

McBurnie, capped seven times for Scotland, has dismissed any suggestions that he could rock the boat in a bid to secure a switch to Bramall Lane.

He added: "Anyone who knows me knows that I will stay focused on football and not let my head get turned.

"I have a great relationship with the fans at Swansea and they have been great with me in the four years I've been here."
