Kuranyi plays down transfer talk
Schalke striker Kevin Kuranyi is not thinking about a move away from the club and insists he "is committed heart and soul'' to the Royal Blues.
The 27-year-old, whose contract is up in the summer, has been strongly linked with Premier League sides Sunderland and Birmingham this month.
But, speaking from Schalke's winter training camp in Chiclana de la Frontera, Spain, he revealed he is not concerned with the speculation over his future.
"I try not to get involved in it too much,'' Kuranyi said in an interview on the club's official website. "I want to have success with Schalke. We are in a very good situation at the moment.
"I have already had success here for three-and-a-half years and have also experienced difficult situations, but I feel good here and I am of course committed heart and soul to Schalke.''
Kuranyi, who is out of favour with Germany coach Joachim Low, has scored eight times in the Bundesliga this term.
