Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Luka Modric has refused to commit his future to the club in the wake of interest from Manchester United, report The Daily Mail.

The Croatian international was many Fans' player of the season at White Hart Lane last season and since the retirement of Paul schools, rumours have been circulating that Modric will leave to fill the void left by the former England international.

But Modric, when asked if his future was secure at Tottenham, refused to commit himself, with United still prowling.


"I'm a Tottenham player and will be in London on July 7 to begin preparing for the season, but I want to say that transfers could occur later," Modric said.

"If my situation changes after the start of preparation it would not be a problem. In England it is often the case they happen on the last day of the transfer period, August 31, so it is pointless to worry about anything now."

With United keen to bolster their midfield options ahead of an assault on domestic and European honours, Modric will ably fill the void left by Scholes in the Old Trafford midfield.

And with Wesley Sneijder have ruled out a move to United, Modric's latest refusal to commit to Spurs may put Sir Alex Ferguson on alert.
