Modric condemns reports of Spurs exit

Luka Modric has pledged his future to Tottenham Hotspur and expressed frustration at rumours linking him with a move away from White Hart Lane.

The 25-year-old is the creative lynchpin of Spurs' team, leading many commentators to describe him as the perfect heir to Paul Scholes at Old Trafford. Reports have also suggested that Chelsea and Barcelona are poised to make a move for the Croatia international.

But Modric, who signed a new six-year deal last summer, insists he has no interest in an approach from any of these clubs.

"There's no truth in all these rumours," he told Sportskenovosti. "The only truth is that I'm a Tottenham player and I'm happy to be where I am. I'm fully focused on my job.

"Following my arrival in 2008 every transfer window is the same. Newspapers are always talking about me moving away. The story is always the same. Chelsea, Manchester United, Barcelona and so on. Every time it's the same stories - and I even saw them last June when I signed my new contract with Tottenham.

"My future? Who knows what the future will bring, but I'm a Tottenham player and I'm happy to be at White Hart Lane."
