Valencia striker Roberto Soldado has said that he will be staying with the Spanish club this summer despite speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League, reports.

The 28 year old was prolific for Valencia last season, scoring 24 goals in 36 La Liga appearances and had reportedly attracted attention from Tottenham, with manager Andre Villas-Boas on the look out for a quality striker this summer.

Soldado appeared to fuel that speculation last week when he said he would be interested in a move to the Premier League.

However, it appears that the striker has back-tracked and has said that has future lies with Valencia at the Mestalla.

“Clearly [my future] is with Valencia,” he told Marca. “It is the place where I want this to return the club to the site you have to be, that is the Champions League.

“This year there has been a lot of fuss. I do not want to use it as an excuse. Hopefully we are nearing the end of such troubles and entering a period of stability for the good of the club. What we want is calm and sporting success.”

Soldado will hope that the club have more success next season as they just missed out on a place in the Champions League last term.

Spurs will now have to turn their attentions to other targets, with AVB thought to be interested in Barcelona striker David Villa and Internacional front-man Leandro Damiao.
