Reported Liverpool and Tottenham target Pedro Leon will not be leaving Real Madrid this summer, it has been claimed.
According to talkSPORT, the 24-year-old winger will resist the advances of the Barclays Premier League duo in order to fight for his place at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Leon made only six appearances - all as substitute - under Jose Mourinho last season and, despite the interest of Liverpool and Spurs, the former Spain under-21 international is not looking to leave Madrid.
It is the second time in three days Liverpool have been rebuffed in their pursuit of more potent wide options, with Leon's apparent rejection following Sylvain Marveaux's move to Newcastle.
The 25-year-old Frenchman was expected to join Liverpool on a free transfer having left Rennes but, somewhat unexpectedly, was confirmed as a Newcastle player on Saturday.
It has since been speculated that Marveaux only moved to St. James' Park after failing his Liverpool medical but, regardless of whether that is true or not, the Reds must look elsewhere to acquire a new wideman.
Spurs, meanwhile, have not been as active as Liverpool in the search for extra width but are thought to have been monitoring a number of targets capable of playing on either flank.
Goal.com had previously reported that Spurs had been scouting Sevilla's Diego Perotti, while versatile Lille forward Gervinho has also been on the radar of the White Hart Lane club.
However, the recruitment of a proven goalscorer remains a transfer window priority for Spurs and Atletico Madrid marksman Diego Forlan and Chelsea star Didier Drogba have been linked with moves to north London.
