Kayden Jackson is staying focused despite interest from other clubs.

The striker has had a whirlwind year since signing from Barnsley last summer, scoring 16 goals as Stanley clinched the League Two title.

This has led to a flurry of interest from clubs for the 24-year-old who has two years left on his Stanley contract – but the Reds have so far turned down the bids.

“Wherever I am I will always give my all to the club and stay focused,” said Jackson.

“I had a great season last season, from coming as a trialist in the summer and not knowing where I would be playing or if I would be staying at Barnsley U23s.

“I was given a chance here, I am grateful to Accrington who have given me an opportunity and I don’t think I could have worked any harder, it was a really good season.

“To win silverware was a real bonus, it was a dream come true for me, and I am looking forward to the future.

“There was always going to be interest in a few players after last season and that’s football.

“It shows I have done the right things here and the whole team has done well, we were all in it together.

“I have got a good pre-season under my belt and whatever happens, happens. I just enjoy playing football.”
