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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
