BURNLEY target Che Adams has revealed that he was never close to leaving Birmingham City on transfer deadline day.

The Blues frontman was the subject of interest from the Clarets and Southampton but neither side reached the reported £15m valuation the Blues placed on the 22-year-old.

Adams stayed at St Andrews and scored in the 2-0 weekend win over Nottingham Forest having also found the net in the draw against Swansea City last week.

And the striker said a deadline day move was never really on the cards.

"It was my girlfriend's birthday so we weren't really up to much," Adams said of how he spent deadline day in an interview with BBC WM Sport. "We just went out for some food and carried on our day as normal."

Asked if there was ever a point where he felt a move might be in the offing, Adams said: "Not really no, I spoke with the gaffer a couple of days before and we were all on the same page and I am happy at Birmingham and I think everyone knows that."

He added: "I have just carried on performing, like on Tuesday when we got the 3-3 draw and I scored again. I am happy at Birmingham.

"It's nice to get that recognition (of teams' interest) but my football is here with Birmingham and it won't affect me."
