Sevilla coach Juande Ramos admits he received a bumper offer from Tottenham.
"They made an excellent, dizzying offer, but I'm under contract to Sevilla and my decision is to fulfil it," Ramos said.
"There was not the slightest possibility that I would accept it because I'm under contract. It did not interest me or the club.
"I wasn't in a meeting with anyone, what happened was that I met with a person and that person went on to meet other people who were surely Tottenham."
