Tottenham Hotspur announced on Sunday that Croatian playmaker Luka Modrić has signed a new six-year contract which ties him at White Hart Lane until 2016.

The 24-year-old had recently been linked with a lucrative move to Manchester United after his impressive form for the North London club over the past two seasons.

But Modrić has put an end to the stories linking him with a move away from Spurs by signing a new contract to remain at the club.

He told the club's official website: "Tottenham Hotspur gave me my chance in the Premier League and I want to go on to achieve great success here with them.

"Yes, there have been enquiries from other big clubs, but I have no interest in going anywhere.

"Last season's top-four finish was an indication of where we are as a club and I feel I can continue to improve and go on to achieve everything I want to at Spurs."

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp added in Sky Sports News: "He has always been happy at the club. He is a fantastic player, he is a great lad.

"He comes in every day and trains hard, works hard. He is low maintenance.

"To have him tied up for six years, the chairman has done a marvellous job in doing that deal with him.

"He could play in any team in the world in my opinion and you have got to keep your best players."
