Espanyol’s Cameroon international goalkeeper, who has long been linked as a replacement for Tottenham’s blundering England keeper Paul Robinson, has said he is content in La Liga and has no intention of coming to Spain.
Carlos Kameni has been linked with a move to White Hart Lane, and other European destinations, since January but the 24-year-old says he isn’t going anywhere:
I’m very happy at Espanyol and I’m very comfortable there. I hope to return to Barcelona [Espanyol’s base] and to have a good pre-season.
I have a contract there until the 30th of June 2009 and, if there are no changes, I will begin to train with my team-mates.
The statement is a blow to Spurs manager Juande Ramos, who is chasing several goalkeeping options due to the loss of Radek Cerny and horrendous form of Paul Robinson. However, it does now open up the door for PSV’s loud-mouthed Brazillian Gomes to make his proposed £10m move as Tottenham’s undisputed number one. However, I don’t expect that to be the only goalkeeper Ramos moves for before August.
