Real Madrid midfielder Lassana Diarra insists he is happy at the club and has no intention of leaving the Spanish capital.

The 26-year-old has become a bit-part player under Jose Mourinho this season and has been strongly linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

The France international joined Real in January 2009 following a £20million move from Portsmouth, where he worked under Spurs boss Harry Redknapp.

It was rumoured Diarra would be a makeweight in any move that saw Sandro swap White Hart Lane for Real, thus reuniting the holding midfielder with Redknapp.

But his agent, John Williams, has dismissed any speculation linking him with a move away from the Bernabeu, despite interest from Manchester United and Juventus.

“Contrary to what is being said, Lass does not want to leave Real Madrid,” he told Le 10 Sport.

“He has two years left on his contract and is feeling well in Madrid.

“I have not opened negotiations with any club in either England or Italy, but if there is a great offer then we’ll study it.”
