Erik Lamela has dismissed rumours linking him with a move away from Tottenham and says he has no thoughts about leaving.
The Argentina star is once again the subject of speculation linking him with a move away from White Hart Lane, but says he is baffled by the rumours and does not know where they have come from.
The speculation is nothing new to Lamela, who says he will be staying at White Hart Lane for the forthcoming campaign.
“Ever since I came to Tottenham I’ve heard that I am supposed to be leaving,” he said. “It is the same every summer. I do not know why.
“Even when things did not go as planned at the start, I never thought about leaving.”
Lamela also believes Tottenham have unfinished business this season after seeing their title challenge fall short before they eventually slipped to third place in the Premier League table.
The midfielder is confident the experience has made Tottenham stronger and is expecting even better in this campaign.
“Last year we did very well by finishing third,” he added. “I feel we can do even better this season.”
