Spurs target Ebert considering options

Real Valladolid attacking midfielder Patrick Ebert says Atletico Madrid are an attractive option for his future, but he is also considering other offers including one reportedly from Tottenham Hotspur.

The enigmatic Ebert was one of La Liga’s surprise packages last season, with six goals and six assists in 22 starts as Valladolid finished comfortably in mid-table. His performances led to interest from other Spanish clubs including Atletico, whose sporting director Jose Luis Caminero was photographed lunching with the player and his agent in March.

The former Hertha Berlin starlet told kicker that a move to the Estadio Vicente Calderon might suit him, but playing in the Premier League next term was also a possibility.

"Atletico is a very attractive club because they will play in the Champions League,” he said. “But they are not the only option I have. I also have offers from England.”

Ebert, 26, said he appreciated the opportunity Valladolid had given him to kick-start a career which had been stalled due to fitness and off-the-pitch issues after he had initially burst onto the scene in 2009 as a member of Germany’s European Championship winning side with Mesut Ozil and Manuel Neuer. But a move might now suit both parties he suggested.

“This club has given me an opportunity to play a great year, it has been a present from heaven,” he said. “[But now] I feel ready to take the next step. There is a clear agreement, the club will not put obstacles in my way if some conditions are met.”

Ebert said remaining in Spain was preferable than a return to Germany.

"Honestly, the Bundesliga does not attract me at all,” he said. “I have found happiness in Spain.”
