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.
