There has been speculation that Chelsea want to sign the Cameroon international as a replacement for Ashley Cole, whose contract is due to expire at the end of the season.

But Assou-Ekotto, who has been at Spurs since 2006, says there have been no discussions over a possible move and will not be distracted by the rumours.

"I have a contract until 2015 with Spurs and I do not know if they want to sell me, so for me it is paper talk," he told Sky Sports.

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.
