Everton captain Phil Neville admits he was flattered by interest from Tottenham but has stressed he is happy at Goodison Park.

Spurs failed with a late bid to sign Neville in last month's transfer window and the 34-year-old told www.evertonfc.com: "It is always flattering to be linked with a club like Spurs, but there is only one man who makes the decision and that is (Everton manager) David Moyes.

"The bid has been turned down so let's get on with the football."

He added: "I am the Everton captain and I love playing for this club. The fans have accepted me and I have taken them to my heart.

"I love it here and when you enjoy playing for a club like I do for Everton, then you are happy to leave everything in the hands of the manager."
