Morecambe striker Jack Redshaw does not regret turning down the lure of League One football in August.

Redshaw stole the headlines in the last transfer window after snubbing Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough side after they had agreed terms with the Shrimps.

The 24-year-old knows he is a financial asset to boss Jim Bentley’s cash-stricken side but admitted he is not swayed by the attention of suitors and intends to be at the club when another transfer window closes on Monday.

He said: “I don’t regret not going to Peterborough, not at all, I’m happy here.

“I’m settled so I don’t regret it one bit. I just need to keep doing well, playing well and we will see what comes. But I just get on with it.

“I turn up every day to training and play on the Saturday. I’ve not heard anything, so I will stay here until the end of my contract, that is the way I see it.”

Redshaw bagged his seventh goal of the season in Morecambe’s 1-1 draw with Plymouth last weekend.

But the striker admitted the Shrimps should have hit the back of the net more than once.

He said: “Everyone was happy with a point. We could possibly of taken the three.

“I thought the team played well. We created plenty of chances for the strikers but we should possibly have scored more.”

Despite missing a decisive penalty in Morecambe’s 0-0 draw with Stevenage earlier this month, Redshaw is brimming with confidence ahead of Saturday’s clash with AFC Wimbledon at the Globe Arena.

He said: “I feel good. Obviously I’m getting a run of games now so I’m feeling, fitter, stronger and sharper.

“Getting two goals against Hartlepool in December was a big boost for me. But I go and miss a penalty, which was disappointing.

“Then I’ve had a few decent games and the goal against Plymouth was another pick-me-up.

“I think I’ve found a bit of form so I am feeling confident before every game.

“The more confident you are, the better you play so if I get more confident 
I will hopefully score more goals.”

Redshaw still believes 11th-placed Morecambe can mount a play-off push if they turn draws into victories.

He said: “I think we are only going to kick on and push on.

“We should have picked up a few more three points, rather than draws but I’m sure the wins will come.

“We’ve picked up a few too many draws but we are still unbeaten in 2015.”
