Real Madrid forward Jese Rodriguez has ended speculation linking him with a move to Tottenham by signing a new four-year deal at the Bernabeu.

The 20-year-old was reportedly on the wish-list of Spurs, who were willing to pay up to £10m for one of the standout performers of the recent Under-20 World Cup, after he revealed his desire to play more first-team football.

Jese only made one La Liga appearance for Real Madrid last season, but impressed for the club's B team, scoring 22 goals.

And the Spaniard has agreed to extend his stay in Madrid until 2017 following the arrival of Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti, who replaced Jose Mourinho this summer.

A statement on the club's official website read: "Real Madrid C.F. announces that Jesé has extended his contract, by which he will remain with the club for the next four seasons."

Jese has been compared to team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo in the past - and the youngster hopes to replicate the prolific Portuguese forward over the next few seasons.

"I have liked a lot of players; the Brazilian Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, but my favourite is Cristiano Ronaldo. I like being compared to him," he told Marca last month. "I love his drive. He never gets tired of scoring goals. He always wants more."
