Wolfsburg sporting director Olaf Rebbe rejects Tottenham and Man City links

Olaf Rebbe replaced Klaus Allofs as Wolfsburg's sporting director in December.

Wolfsburg sporting director Olaf Rebbe has rejected reports linking him with a role at Tottenham Hotspur or Manchester City.

Rebbe, 38, was made Wolfsburg's permanent sporting director in January after having initially replaced Klaus Allofs after his departure in December.

Wolfsburg have eased their relegation worries since the winter break, having overseen a positive January window in which the club received €36 million from Paris Saint-Germain for wantaway Germany international Julian Draxler and then brought in players including Yunus Malli and Paul-Georges Ntep.

Kicker has reported Tottenham Hotspur have contacted Rebbe through a middleman as they continue their search for a new technical director, while Bild has claimed that Manchester City are also interested in the Wolfsburg man.

However, Rebbe told reporters on Thursday: "That's not an issue for me."

He said he was aware of the rumours but added: "Only two months ago, I took on a demanding challenge here at Wolfsburg. Moreover, I demand from everyone here that they commit to VfL, and that includes me, 100 percent."

Wolfsburg are currently six points clear of the relegation playoff spot in the Bundesliga table.
