Tottenham Hotspur latest: 'Right now nothing will make me change clubs'

Joao Moutinho

All the latest Tottenham Hotspur news and gossip.

Tottenham target Joao Moutinho has strongly denied rumours he will leave Porto this summer, with Monaco also interested.

The in-demand midfielder, who was previously claimed to have an agreement with his club to depart, said at a press conference: "Right now, nothing will make me change clubs. I am extremely happy here and the most important thing is happiness and winning titles, my future is up to FC Porto. No player is immune to leaving. But if something does come up, it has to be something good for both parties."

Tottenham's Clint Dempsey is one of three big names said to be heading a summer clearout list at the Lane, with Emmanuel Adebayor and Scott Parker the others. The Mirror report that Christian Benteke, David Villa, Lisandro Lopez, Leandro Damiao and Hulk form a five man shortlist in attack.

Gareth Bale is said to be edging closer to signing a new deal, with one report in The Mail claiming the Welshman has demanded a whopping £200,000 a week, £50,000 higher than was previously reported. The request would shatter Spurs' current wage structure, but the club may have little option if they want to keep him.

We have taken a look at why June 16 could be a key date to try and get the winger signed up by, as that is when the Madrid elections take place, and Florentino Perez - who will run unopposed - will begin publicly pushing the intention to sign Bale. If Bale signs a contract then Perez for this summer at least will have to find a new marquee signing to target an appease fans.

With talk in Spain still focusing on Bale, we have taken a look at how newspaper Marca has been describing Spurs as a one-man team.

Gylfi Sigurdsson has stated his disappointment at Spurs missing out on the Champions League, and also issued a plea for the club to hang onto Gareth Bale if they are to qualify next season.

And finally we have published an alternative Premier League table, if shots which hit the woodwork counted as goals. It may make agonising reading for Spurs fans as it would see them finish above Arsenal and in the top four, showing the fine margins which Sigurdsson discussed in his interview.
