Tottenham target Patrick Hermann has played down reports of a move to White Hart Lane in January, and says he has heard nothing from his agent over a potential switch.

Hermann has struck ten times in 56 games for Borussia Monchengladbach, attracing interest from elsewhere in Europe.

Reports last week suggested Spurs could be tracking the Germany U-21 star ahead of a move when the winter window opens.

Asked about Tottenham’s reported interest Herrmann denied any contact from the north London club, and says he is content to stay put for the time being.

"I have heard about that. I read papers," Herrmann told Rheinische Press. "Of course, those sums are somewhat flattering.

"You don't have to overrate it. My agents did not tell me anything about it. That's just rumours.

"I am happy about the praise. But why should I leave now? I feel great here. And the last season was great fun, we played beautiful football. We want to return to that now and are on the right path."

Spurs are expected to be active in the January transfer window as they look to consolidate their place near the top of the Premier League.

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas has been linked with moves for Shakhtar Donetsk forward Willian, Malaga’s Isco and Athletic Bilbao’s Fernando Llorente.
