Colchester United defender Greg Halford admits he wants a move to the Premiership in January, with Portsmouth thought to be interested in the 21 year old.
Sheffield United made a bid for him on transfer deadline day in August but that bid was rejected. Halford is out of contract this summer and on the transfer list at Layer Road, as they try and get some money from a player that would leave on a free.
'I want to play well for Colchester for as long as it takes but I don't hide the fact that I want to play as high as I can.'
'I have had to get used to people watching me,' he explained. 'Over the past couple of years I have let it get to me and my performances have dropped but I don't let that happen any more.
'Sheffield United came in for me at 2pm on transfer deadline day and that has been the only concrete bid to come in.
'When that was rejected I felt a little low but I have bounced back from that and just got on with the job.
'I am not aware of any other approaches since the summer. People read newspapers and see me linked with other teams but nothing concrete has come in since Sheffield United.'
