Espanyol have rejected reports defender Daniel Jarque has been in London to talk to Tottenham.

Reports suggested Jarque had travelled to England to meet with Juande Ramos about a move to White Hart Lane.

But the Primera Division club have stated he has been in Barcelona all weekend and spent Monday morning undergoing X-rays on the toe injury that has kept him out of action recently.

Espanyol are preparing a statement that will deny that the 24-year-old has spoken to another club, let alone travelled to England to discuss the matter.
