Petrov rejects Spurs link

02 June 2007 04:04
Atletico Madrid winger Martin Petrov has distanced himself from talk of an £8million summer move to the Premier League with Tottenham. The Bulgaria international wideman has long been mentioned as a possible solution to Spurs' left-sided midfield problems. However, the 28-year-old insists he is fully committed to Atletico and not looking to leave the Spanish club this summer. "I can tell you that they are not the only club which has shown interest, but as I say this is only interest and observations," Petrov is quoted as saying. "There has been speculation linking me with Tottenham since last year but I am still playing for Atletico and nobody has called me with a transfer offer." Petrov, the current Bulgarian football of the year, moved to Atletico from German side Wolfsburg in 2005. The former CSKA Sofia midfielder has netted nine times in 54 international appearances.
