Palace's Soares plays down Blackburn link
The former England Under-21 international, while flattered to be mentioned in such circles, says his sole priority is to get the Selhurst Park club back to the top flight.
He told the Croydon Advertiser: "Obviously it's brilliant when you hear that Premiership clubs are interested in you - but I just want to concentrate on Palace.
"If I keep working hard things will take care of themselves - but first things first, I want to help Palace get promoted.
"I'm confident I've got what it takes to be a Premiership player - but this is where I want to be at the moment."
