Atletico Madrid striker Forlan rules out Tottenham - and England

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan has ruled out ever returning to the Premiership.

Forlan endured a turbulent two-and-half-year period in England when he took 27 games to score for Manchester United and he left for Villarreal in August 2004.

Now Forlan maintains he will never return to play in England despite being linked with Tottenham.

He told the Daily Express: "Tottenham are a club who are going in the right direction but I have no interest in joining the Premier League with any club.

"For a start, Spain is much hotter and also it is my home now.

"We have some very exciting young players and I am excited for the season.

"I will never play in England again but I still actually look back with fond memories at some moments."
