He said: "There's been a lot of speculation around. However, I know there are two strikers' places up for grabs here, not just one, because no-one has been scoring that many goals.
"That's why I want to stay and fight for my place in the team. No striker has nailed it down yet.
"It's been a stop-start season for me. I've been way off my best and it was frustrating not to even be in the squad for the two previous games.
"But I'm also aware this was my first goal of the season."
