Luka Modrić expects to remain at Tottenham Hotspur until at least the summer, despite speculation linking the Croatia midfielder with a move away from White Hart Lane.

The 26-year-old did not feature in Spurs’ first game of the season at Old Trafford amid interest from Chelsea, and the Blues had a £40m bid for the attacking midfielder rejected on the final day of the summer transfer window.

But Modrić has since been in superb form for Spurs and in the wake of fresh speculation over his future, the Croatian insisted his immediate future lies at White Hart Lane.

“All this talk is just in the press – I don’t know anything about any of these alleged offers,” Modric told Croatian newspaper Sportske Novosti.

“We are doing our best at Tottenham to get the results sought by the club and the fans.

“Considering all the circumstances, particularly due to the fact I do not want to go over what I went through in the summer transfer period, I can say with almost 100 per cent certainty that I will stay at Tottenham until the summer.

“There is a small chance I could leave as it is a theoretical possibility if the club gets an offer for me and it is one you do not want to refuse.

“However, the reality is that I will stay at Spurs until June and then we will see. All options are possible. I just want to be healthy and play well, everything else will go in order.”

And Modrić reassured Spurs supporters that he will remain committed to the club’s cause as Harry Redknapp’s men bid to further close the gap to Manchester City and Manchester United at the top of the Premier League.

“If I stay at Tottenham, nothing will change. I will give my all in every game.”
