Nicolas Spolli (left): Claims Tottenham wanted him

Spurs were reported to have made a move for Spolli just before the deadline, but a deal never materialised.

Now the 30-year-old Argentine says that he made it clear to Catania - who he joined in 2009 - that he wanted to stay with them.

"I had told the president that I wanted to remain in Catania as soon as last season came to a close, before there was any talk of transfers," Spolli is quoted by La Sicilia.

"When the interest from Tottenham came in, the club didn't even need to ask me, because they knew what my intentions were.

"I am happy in Catania, it's a wonderful city and when I have the time it's incredible to enjoy both the sea and Etna."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
