FC Utrecht young gun Tommy Oar is not getting carried away with recent interest from top clubs.

Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven, Premier League club Sunderland and Scottish champions Celtic are all believed to have shown some interest in the 21-year old winger but he insists he is focused on continuing his development with Utrecht.

“It’s nice to hear that other clubs might be looking at you because it probably means you have done quite well but I have heard nothing concrete whatsoever, and nor has my agent, so I am really not taking too much notice of it,” said Oar.

“I really don’t know how much truth there is in it. I take it with a pinch of salt but of course if something were to pop up and it was attractive then you’d have to be excited.

“I am happy where I am right now. I have two seasons left on my contract at Utrecht after this one and I feel I’ve made good progress over the last year or so and just want that to continue. That’s all I am really thinking about.”

Oar has made 16 Eredivisie appearances so far this season and is yet to score a goal but has produced five assists for Utrecht who sit sixth on the table.
