West Ham, Arsenal and Tottenham were all reported to have shown an interest in the 27-year-old, who became a free agent having left Schalke earlier this summer.

Now the Romania international appears to be heading to Spain, with his agent claiming a deal with Spurs failed to be finalised and Rayo Vallecano emerging as favourites to land him.

Victor Becali is quoted by Dolce Sport as saying: "Marica's transfer to Tottenham failed.

"Rayo cannot pay the salary, nor can they approach half the salary that he had in Schalke.

"Very few teams in Spain can pay well, but Marica is now in Madrid."

The Premier League: As Crazy As A Bag Of Snakes

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
