It seems Tottenham fans can only be sure he will stay ay White Hart Lane next season once the transfer window slams shut.
"I'm a Tottenham player and will be in London on July 7 to begin preparing for the season," is quoted as saying by the Daily Star. "But I want to say that transfers could occur later.
"In England it is often the case they happen on the last day of the transfer period, August 31, so it is pointless to worry about anything now.
"If my situation changes after the start of preparation it would not be a problem."
