Luka Modric is almost 100% certain he will remain with Tottenham until the end of the season.

Modric was mooted as a potential target for both Manchester clubs and Chelsea, leading the playmaker to admit he would like to leave Spurs for Stamford Bridge.

The 26-year-old is now the subject of fresh speculation and, while he has not ruled out eventually leaving for pastures new, he expects to end the season at White Hart Lane.

"All this talk is just in the press - I don't know anything about any of these alleged offers," he said.

"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% certainty that I will stay at Tottenham until the summer."
