Portsmouth star Ronan Curtis has dismissed links with a move away from Fratton Park, after it emerged that a series of Championship clubs were considering a move for the Irishman – including Leeds United, Sheffield United, Derby County and Premier League side Leicester City.
Portsmouth winger Ronan Curtis only joined Pompey this summer for a fee of £100,000, but has started the League One campaign in electric form, catching the eye of Championship and Premier League clubs.
In 13 League games so far, Curtis has contributed an impressive six goals and five assists, helping Pompey climb to the summit of the League One table after 16 games.
TEAMtalk reported that there are up to 30 clubs scouting Pompey’s Irish winger, with a host of Championship and Premier League clubs considering moves for Curtis. Last week, Pompey’s joint top scorer posted on Twitter insisting he doesn’t plan on leaving Fratton Park, despite the links with big clubs.

However, 21-year-old spoke to i News to further dismiss the links, insisting he is thoroughly enjoying his time at Fratton Park and will not be leaving in January.
“Yeah! There are massive clubs out there but I’ve only just got here, I’ve only been here four months.
“I’m a Pompey lad, I love this club and the backroom staff and everyone have just been so kind to me, so lovely and welcoming. I’m not ready to go nowhere yet, so all that there is just rumours really. I’m proud to be here.”
