Goalkeeper Brad Friedel has played down talk of a return to Blackburn and is adamant that he is 'very happy' at Tottenham.
The veteran 41-year-old American has slipped behind France international Hugo Lloris in Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas' pecking order this season which has resulted in Championship side Blackburn making an approach to take him back to Ewood Park as a player-coach.
Spurs snubbed Rovers' efforts to try and take Friedel back to Lancashire, where he previously spent eight years as the number one shot-stopper. And Villas-Boas highlighted the player's importance to his squad by making him captain for the 3-1 win over Panathinaikos in the Europa League on Thursday.
Friedel has now spoken out to confirm that he has no plans to leave White Hart Lane at this moment in time and he is happy to be part of the north Londoners' squad.
"I cannot answer questions (about a potential January move)," Friedel said.
"It's all hypothetical. Right now I am a Tottenham player and I am very happy here.
"I have no idea (about Blackburn's interest). When I was apparently contemplating doing a medical I was at home having Thanksgiving dinner with my family.
"What happens between club and club a lot of times players don't know. At the end of the day I am contracted to Tottenham and am concentrating on Tottenham."
