Getafe midfielder Derek Boateng is delighted with interest from Tottenham.

Boateng is happy his form is creating transfer talk.

"I am playing at a good level at the moment, I am happy with my form and hopefully it will continue," he said.

"I am hearing about clubs such as Tottenham and Sevilla, but I am down to earth."

Boateng, who once came close to signing for Steve McClaren at Middlesbrough, admits a move to England is an attraction.

"All good players will love to play in England and players in my position on the field are stars there, I like the physical part of football, so I would love to play there one day," he said.

"Tottenham? They are a fantastic team, White Hart Lane is a great stadium, so you never know, it would be fantastic. However, I am happy here in Getafe."
