Manchester United midfielder Darron Gibson has played down talk of a move to Fulham and expressed his happiness with life at Old Trafford.Gibson has broken into United's first-team squad this season, playing a key role in their successful Carling Cup campaign and making his first two Premier League appearances off the bench.Sir Alex Ferguson has publicly praised the 21-year-old's form and progress but, with a regular starting role still some way off, there has been inevitable interest in the Ireland international.Recent speculation suggested Roy Hodgson may look to take him to Craven Cottage in the summer but Gibson has brushed aside the talk and revealed his desire to continue his development with the Red Devils."I never heard anything (of the Fulham interest)," he said in the Irish Examiner. "But I am really happy where I am for the minute."This season I have been involved a lot more than last season or the season before. I've learned about how Man United play and about how the manager works."Gibson started in the Champions League against Aalborg in December but he is still awaiting his first start in the league and admits that is his main priority."It is the next step for me," he added. "I am pushing at the moment but I haven't really got my chances. Hopefully I can push a bit more in the next few games and get my chance in the league."
