Oubina rejects Spurs trial
03 Jun 2008 - 10:09:38
Celta Vigo midfielder and former Birmingham City loanee Borja Oubina claims to have turned down the chance to train with Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
The 26-year-old midfielder made just two appearances for the Blues at the start of last season, before sustaining cruciate ligament damage which has kept him on the sidelines ever since.
However, Oubina says he has nothing to prove and will not be heading to White Hart Lane in a bid to impress.
He told Faro de Vigo: "It is true that Tottenham called my agent to tell him they wanted me and offered the option of going on trial in late June or July.
"But from the outset I thought it was a surreal idea. My current contract is with Celta and I have nothing to prove to anybody.
"It flatters me that they think about me and have taken into account my situation and I understand that they want to see me before buying.
"But I do not know that they can assess me because, in five or ten days, not too many conclusions can be made."
