Serbian goalkeeper Zeljko Brkic admits that he is no hurry to leave Serie A, amid reported interest from Tottenham. reports how the 25-year-old stopper, currently on loan at Siena from Udinese is one of the leading lights in Italy at the moment, after a series of scintillating performances for the relegation threatened club.

"I have just come to Siena and I would like to prove myself on a big stage first," Brkic told Sportske. "There will be a lot of time to leave Italy someday in the future. as I know even Udinese is in no hurry.

"In January? I am sure that nothing will happen in next transfer window as I know even Udinese is in no hurry."

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has been credited with an interest in Brkic, despite having a surplus of goalkeepers currently on the books at White Hart Lane.

Summer signing Brad Friedel has cemented his place as first choice, and Carlo Cudicini and Heurelho Gomes have provided more than capable back-up.

However, with the aforementioned Brazilian rumoured to be interested in leaving Tottenham in the New Year, in search of regular first-team action, Redknapp could move for Brkic as a future No.1.

"I know that before this season there were talks and that Tottenham was interested in me," he continued. "I think that Tottenham even talked with Udinese but it was all far from a conclusion.

"For now, let us say that first contact with Spurs was made but that is all. I am not thinking about leaving."
