Stipe Pletikosa is ready to reject a move to Tottenham in favour of staying at Spartak Moscow. Spurs had been linked with a move for the goalkeeper.

Pletikosa said: "I've always said that if I play, I don't want to leave.

"I'm happy here. Next season we will play in the Champions League, which every footballer wants to be part of. However, if I don't get the chance to play, then certainly in the summer I'll find a change in scenery.

"While there is no doubting Pletikosa's talent, he fell out of favour at Spartak last season because of a limit on fielding six foreigners in the Russian Premier League.

"Even the coach said that if there weren't restrictions on foreigners, then I would be in goal."
