Given plays down Spurs link

03 Dec 2008 - 09:43:32

Goalkeeper Shay Given insists he is happy at Newcastle United and has dismissed reports of a potential move to Tottenham.

The long-serving Republic of Ireland international is reported to be a target for Spurs, with newly-installed manager Harry Redknapp keen to find a replacement for error-prone current keeper Heurelho Gomes.

Portsmouth's current England number one David James has also been linked with a January move to White Hart Lane.

But despite speculation linking him with a move away from Tyneside, Given claims he is happy to remain at St James' Park.

Speaking about Spurs, he said: "They have spent money on a goalkeeper already so I don't think they are going to spend any more.

"I'm sure that when Heurelho Gomes gets his confidence back he'll be a very, very good goalkeeper again.

"I wouldn't want to leave Newcastle anyway. I'm very happy where I'm at."
