Jackson Hastings has played down speculation over his future and insists that he is fully focused on performing well for Salford.
The 23-year-old has been linked with a move to a rival Super League side and also a return to his homeland Australia with NRL teams as his contract with the Red Devils is due to expire at the end of the season.
And, following Salford’s recent disappointing Challenge Cup exit against Hull KR at the AJ Bell Stadium, coach Ian Watson suggested that a number of his players had not performed because they have been distracted by interest from other clubs.

But Hastings is adamant that he was not one of the players in question because he is concentrating solely on helping Salford achieve success this season. He said: “I think I know who he was talking about but it’s one of those things.
It could change the lives of some people so you could understand why they would be distracted. “I’ve been through it before and I understand the process of it.
I definitely wasn’t distracted by it. “For me it’s business as usual, it’s all part of the job. You’ve got to be able to handle it and I think I’m pretty well equipped to handle it.”
