Tottenham’s chances of acquiring Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo have increased, should the club still want him, after the Spanish star was quoted as saying he has no plans to return to Real Madrid.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp was heavily rumoured to be wanting to sign Negredo at the start of last season, but the 25-year old instead decided to go to Sevilla for a reported €17 million, with the option of a buy back deal in the first two years.

Two years on, Negredo looks set to be sold by the club, and has been the subject of much transfer speculation.


"There hasn't been a single moment this season where I've thought about a return to Madrid. It would be a lack of respect towards Sevilla if I was thinking about Real Madrid”, he told Spanish newspaper Marca.

"I told myself that it was not the end of the world when I left Madrid for Almeria a few years back. I'm grateful that Almeria gave me the chance to prove my worth. I'm now with Sevilla and I'll always do my utmost for this club."

Tottenham will no doubt renew their interest in the 25 year old striker, whose Spanish outfit currently sitting seventh in the La Liga table.
