HOT-SHOT striker Jon Stead today spoke of his desire to fire Town towards promotion if the transfer window fails to produce a big-club move.
The 20-year-old was watched by 25 scouts as he took his season's tally to 17 with a double in the 3-1 win against Doncaster which lifted Town back into the play-off placings.
Manager Peter Jackson insists there have been no further offers following the rejection of Sunderland's £800,000 a few months ago, while Stead simply smiles and takes it all in his stride.
"If a transfer is going to happen, it's going to happen, so my plan at the moment is to carry on letting my feet do the talking," said Stead, who also set up the third goal for Jon Worthington.
"I had no idea there were so many scouts at the game but I'm sure they were here to watch others, not just myself.
"It simply felt good to put on a performance, to win the game and to get back in the play-off places and if the scouts went home with some nice notes about us then great."
Eight Premiership clubs represented were Manchester United, Liverpool, Aston Villa, Leeds, Southampton, Newcastle, Birmingham and Bolton.
Leading the First Division interest were Sunderland, along with West Ham, Ipswich, Coventry, Wigan, Sheffield United, Cardiff, Nottingham Forest and Reading.
Division II sides QPR, Bristol City and Chesterfield, who were also at the match, would not be able to live with an asking price in excess of £1m.
Stead - who was joined by Steve Yates in a routine drugs test after the match, commented: "My heart is with Town and all I'm thinking about at the moment is doing what I can to help us challenge for promotion, which we are all confident we can do.
"If the club get an acceptable bid and I move on, then I'll do my best for whoever signs me.
"It really is as simple as that and I'll let everything take its course.
"I love playing for Town because they are the club I've always supported, but like all other players, I also want to play at the highest possible level."
Jackson believes interest in Stead is bound to grow, but he is in no rush to sell with Town on a run of just one defeat in eight and looking to extend their winning run to four at Cambridge on Saturday.
"Jon is a special player and everyone can see he's a fantastic talent," said Jackson, who hopes Andy Booth will recover from hamstring trouble to join the squad at the Abbey Stadium.
"It's only normal for clubs to monitor someone like that - he should have had a hat trick on Saturday - and it doesn't surprise me the scouts are turning up because we've got the best young crop of players we've had here in years."
