Tottenham manager Andre Vilas-Boas has moved to deny reports linking Jermain Defoe and Gylfi Sigurdsson with a move away from the club according to The Express.

Reports in recent weeks have linked both players with a potential move away from White Hart Lane.

England international Defoe’s future has been under speculation following the arrival of Tottenham’s record signing Roberto Soldado from Valencia.

There have also been suggestions that Spurs boss AVB may not have finished in his summer striker shopping.

QPR are known to be interested in Defoe with Harry Redknapp knowing the player well from their time together at Spurs and West Ham.

But it is unclear whether Defoe would consider dropping down a division in a World Cup year.

Sigurdsson has been linked with a move to West Brom after failing to secure a regular first team birth at Spurs following his arrival from Swansea last summer.

His first team chances appear to have been further limited following the arrival of Brazilian midfielder Paulinho.

But Vilas-Boas as poured cold water on suggestions either player could leave the club. He insisted that Sigurdsson remained in his first team plans whilst pointing out that Defoe has always thrived under competition for places.
