Transfer speculation has surrounded Carlos Edwards since his World Cup adventures in Germany this summer, but the Trinidad & Tobago star is refusing to get carried away by the gossip.

The Luton midfielder was exceptional for Trinidad & Tobago in the World Cup with some key performances, and since then, a number of clubs have reportedly shown interest in the former Wrexham player.

But Edwards admits that the transfer speculation is 'nagging' and wants to firmly concentrate on Luton's season ahead.

In an interview for Hatters World, Edwards said: "There have been a lot of players who have been getting big moves following the World Cup, but I was never really focusing on that. I was just always focusing on doing well for my country and playing a good game of football.

"It has always been nice to be linked with other clubs but sometimes it can be a bit nagging. People prolong it so much. You hear the same stories week in, week out and it can get frustrating.

"It won't be until the transfer window closes that everything will quieten down. I am just waiting until everything is clarified and finalised. I am just concentrating on my football and I am certainly not getting carried away by the rumours.

"I am just happy to be playing football for Luton Town and I will continue to do my best for the club."

Edwards has had no problems readjusting to life back in the Championship, seamlessly recreating his exceptional performances at the World Cup.

He has been pleased with his performances for the Hatters this season, but, more encouragingly for Luton fans, Edwards believes there is still more to come from him.

"I am happy with my performances for the club so far this season," continued Edwards. "I still think I can do more. It was a long, hectic summer for myself, and to come straight back, playing like I have been, has been brilliant for me.

"I thought it would have taken me a little longer, but I have stepped in, put my foot down and took control of that position.

"Hopefully the manager will have faith in me and if I can continue to get a run out in the side, I can continue to maintain this form."

Luton make the trip to Wolves at the weekend and, although admitting the visit to Molineux will be a tough test, Edwards is confident the club can take something away from the game.

"We were unlucky at Wolves last season, where we lost to a deflected shot," Edwards added. "We all know what we have got to do on Saturday. We have got the players to do a job.

"We lost a lot of games last season through silly mistakes and if we can eradicate them from our game, then we have a chance of getting something from Wolves, and be up there come the end of the season."
