Assou-Ekotto has been a key figure for Spurs this term, playing every league game until suffering a season-ending shoulder injury against QPR last month, but a story in France Football appeared to suggest he was eyeing a transfer, citing a 'gentleman's agreement' with the club.

The Cameroon international, who has been at White Hart Lane since 2006, moved quickly to refute such claims, telling BBC Sport: "I want to take this opportunity to clarify some comments that have appeared in the media.

"I am fully committed to Tottenham Hotspur and proud to represent the club in any match, whatever the competition.

"I am very much enjoying my time here. It is a wonderful club with great support and I am looking forward to recovering from my injury in time for next season."
