FERNANDO LLORENTE insists he has no plans to quit Spurs for old side Athletic Bilbao.

Reports claim the veteran striker is wanted back in Spain after an indifferent time at Tottenham.

Llorente has scored just 12 goals in 50 appearances, mainly from the bench, with Harry Kane the first choice hitman in North London.

Llorente is out of contract this summer and Mauricio Pochettino may decide to release him in order to land a youngster forward.

However, the former Juventus ace is hopeful of staying on at Spurs, and isn’t thinking about a return to Bilbao.

Llorente said: “I don’t know anything. The truth is I’m very satisfied here in Spurs, I haven’t thought about leaving.

“I’m at a great club, I still have a contract, and my intention is to win trophies here.

“Right now, I’m enjoying a good moment and I hope I can keep scoring goals and everything keeps going well.”

Meanwhile, one Spurs star set for a bumper new contract is Son Heung-Min.

The South Korea has been in sensational form this season and looks set to pen a deal worth £150,000-a-week.
