Man Utd target signs new Spurs deal

Modric has recently been linked with a move to Manchester United, but the new deal will now keep him at White Hart Lane until 2016.

The 24-year-old told Tottenham’s official website: “Tottenham Hotspur gave me my chance in the Premier League and I want to go on to achieve great success here with them.

“Yes, there have been enquiries from other big clubs, but I have no interest in going anywhere.

“Last season’s top-four finish was an indication of where we are as a club and I feel I can continue to improve and go on to achieve everything I want to at Spurs.”
