Joelinton unaffected by rumors
Hoffenheim's Joelinton says he's unaffected by the reported interest in him.
Joelinton has been linked with a number of clubs after impressing for Hoffenheim this season.
The striker, who is said to have drawn interest from Newcastle United among others, underlines he doesn't pay much attention to rumors, though.
"Of course that's a compliment and a recognition of my achievements. But I concentrate fully on playing football and don't let myself be distracted by these things. Such rumors leave me cold," Joelinton said in an interview with Kicker.
Hoffenheim boss Alexander Rosen has claimed that the striker has attracted interest from 'a dozen of clubs'.
"To be honest, it's not about one or five clubs. There are a dozen of clubs interested in him," Rosen told Bild in February.
According to Bild, Hoffenheim rejected a €50 million bid for the striker in January.
Joelinton, 22, has scored 11 goals in 32 appearances for Hoffenheim this season. His contract runs until 2022.
