Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham both face disappointment in their reported pursuit of Dani Ceballos.

Ceballos, 22, has told Marca his intention is to stay put at Real Madrid.

 

Ceballos said: "I am very ambitious as I have four more years at Madrid and a high [release] clause, and my goal is to succeed at Real Madrid and I think I'm going to do so.

"Zidane has always been clear to me and he has never sold me a pup.

"I am not going to tell you what he has told me because it is private, but he has been very clear in both of his spells."

Spanish outlet El Confidencial reported this week that Tottenham Hotspur are keen on landing midfield star Ceballos.

The same report states West Ham are also following him, along with Arsenal.

Ceballos made only 13 La Liga starts for Real last season, and scored three goals. He made a further 10 appearances from the bench and started two Champions League games.

The Premier League sides could still choose to test Real's resolve by offering big money for Ceballos, but it doesnot appear like Real or Ceballos will be actively pushing for a transfer.
