Brazil marksman Luis Fabiano has committed himself to Sevilla, despite Tottenham and Manchester United being interested in his signature.

The 29-year-old's decision ends weeks of speculation that he could be on his way to the Premier League, with Spurs boss Harry Redknapp particularly vocal with his admiration for the striker.

"He's a fabulous player and would be a brilliant addition to any team," Redknapp said last week.

"I am not unhappy with the squad I have, but of course if a special player came along I would look at it, and Fabiano is a special player all right.

"For sure, he is a class act, but I don't know what he earns. He might be on mega money, so it might prove to be impossible for us."

Fabiano had originally dismissed reports linking him with a move to White Hart Lane, but he appeared to put himself in the frame just a few days ago after stating that he had only just become aware of Tottenham's "ambition".

However, he has finally revealed his intention to remain in Spain, despite also being linked with AC Milan.

"It is true that other clubs were interested in me but I have not held advanced negotiations with anyone," he told ABC.

"I am very happy at Sevilla and I have never said that I will be leaving for Milan or Manchester United. These are big clubs, but Sevilla are also among the best in Europe.

"Could I sign a new deal with Sevilla? My agent is negotiating with the president, but there is no pressure because we have a lot of time."
