Ronan Curtis says he’s ‘not ready to leave’ Portsmouth before Friday’s transfer deadline despite interest from Rovers.

The Republic of Ireland international took his tally to 12 goals this season when netting in Pompey’s 4-2 FA Cup fourth round win over Barnsley at Fratton Park.

With Kenny Jackett’s side pushing for a play-off spot in the third tier, Curtis is hoping to help fire them to promotion this season, rather than harbouring ambitions of a move this month.

Rovers identified Curtis as a player who could add firepower to their attack, having scored 24 times for Pompey from his wide left role.

But they have been given no encouragement by Pompey, with their valuation of Curtis thought to be around £3m, and Rovers haven’t bid for the winger this month.

Because of that, Curtis is relaxed over his future and content to focus on life at Fratton Park.

He told the Portsmouth News: “There have been no talks yet of leaving, but I love this clubs to pieces and hopefully I’ll go up with this team.

“I’m not really ready to leave yet.

“I will take it as it is, I don’t bother keeping my eye on the transfer window, I am here to play football, here to play games.

“I expect to be here after the transfer window, unless the manager gets rid of me. I'm happy to be here.

“Rumours are going to happen, I have scored 12 goals this season, you are going to be linked with teams, but it doesn’t mean anything when there’s no bids or nothing coming in.

“I’m just focusing on my football now and want to do the best I can for the team and for the staff.”
