Tottenham play down Lamela to Atletico Madrid rumours

Published Add your comment

Tottenham have played down rumours summer signing Erik Lamela could leave the club on loan in January.

The Daily Express reported earlier on in the week that Lamela could leave White Hart Lane in the new year - due to the winger's recent poor form.

However a Tottenham source has told the Daily Mail that any talk of Lamela leaving the north London side is a 'pure rumour'.

Tottenham forked out £30million on bringing Argentine international Lamela to the Premier League in the summer.

The 21-year-old was signed by Andre Villas-Boas along with the likes of Paulinho and Roberto Soldado during the summer transfer window after Gareth Bale was sold for £85million.

Lamela has scored just one goal in his first 13 games for the north London side, which had fuelled speculation that he could be loaned out in January.

However Tottenham have denied claims their record signing could be about to leave the club for La Liga side Atletico Madrid.
