Hoffenheim young gun Mlapa plays down Tottenham link

Hoffenheim teenager Peniel Mlapa has played down talk of him making a move to England to join Tottenham.

The 19-year old Togolese-born Germany youth international has attracted plenty of interest after bursting onto the Bundesliga scene this season but has preferred to distance himself from any premature transfer talk.

"I am relaxed about the speculation," he told skysports.com.

"Spurs? I have nothing to say. They are in the Champions League, so they are a big team in England.

"Everyone dreams of playing in the top leagues, but I am happy here."
