Fredi Kanoute has dismissed reports linking him with a return to Tottenham Hotspur and his former manager from Sevilla, Juande Ramos.

"I can assure you that there have been no offers," he told AS.

Kanoute is instead looking forward to the start of the new campaign in Spain and believes that Sevilla have a squad capable of snatching the title away from Real Madrid.

"We may not be the favourites for the league but I think that we can cause Real Madrid and Barcelona a surprise," he continued.

"I think this Sevilla squad is stronger than it has been in previous seasons and we always want to beat the teams that are going for the title."
