olton defender Gary Cahill is ignoring speculation over his future and says he is enjoying playing for the Trotters.[LNB] The defender's future at the Reebok has been cast into doubt after the club revealed that their financial losses had doubled over the past 12 months.[LNB]Trotters chairman Phil Gartside has also conceded the club may have to sell Cahill in the January transfer window in order to help balance the books if a big team make an offer.[LNB]Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham have all been linked with the 24-year-old, who made his England debut against Bulgaria earlier this season.[LNB]But rather than have his head turned by the reported interest in his services, the former Aston Villa defender wants to focus on his commitments for Bolton.[LNB]"I'm contracted to Bolton Wanderers and I'm enjoying my football and my time here," said Cahill. [LNB]"It [the speculation] goes over my head and is out of my control so really it's a bit repetitive and if it's spoken about, it's spoken about." [LNB]He added: "The whole reason why I left Villa was because I needed to play games and the only way I was going to improve was by playing.[LNB]"I'm a much better player than I was then. I've cut out mistakes and things I used to do like going to ground in tackles in the box. [LNB]"I just need to keep my head down and keep focused on the job I've got to do at Bolton. It's a real joy to be part of the team at the moment."
