Muntari rules out Redknapp reunion

Inter Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari has rubbished reports linking him with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in January.  

The Ghana international has been hotly tipped for a transfer-window switch to White Hart Lane, in a move that would see him reunite with Spurs’ manager Harry Redknapp, who brought the 25-year-old to the Premier League at Portsmouth.

But Muntari has moved to distance himself from a return to England, saying: “I have not heard anything about this transaction, I honestly don’t know anything about it.

“I only know that I am an Inter player. All my energies are devoted to this team because I am under contract with them. It is pointless to talk about other sides.”

Despite Muntari’s comments, the speculation is unlikely to die down.

The dynamic midfielder has fallen out of favour at Inter, and is struggling to establish himself in Nerazzurri boss Jose Mourinho’s first-team plans following the arrivals of Thiago Motta and Wesley Sneijder.

Neither has Muntari’s agent, Frank Schreier, done much to quell the rumours surrounding his player and a move to the North-London club, saying earlier this week:

“The two clubs are still talking about this case. It could happen."

But Muntari, whose last act in England was helping Portsmouth lift the FA Cup in 2008, seems intent on remaining in Serie A, where he has spent the majority of his career at Udinese.

“Would I enjoy going back to England? I am settled in Italy,” he said.
