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.

ou spend £200 million in one year and you say 3 years to win the title, I don't think the Man U board signed you to win the title in 3 years after shelling out that sort of cash. Spending that sort of money you should be challenging for the title in this season, not getting an early excuse in to try appeasing the fans and board.
