Robben shrugs off exit rumours

The 25-year-old has made 50 league appearances for the Bernabeu outfit - scoring 11 times - since arriving from Chelsea in 2007.

However, the Dutchman's future in the Spanish capital- along with several of his fellow countrymen including Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Ruud van Nistelrooy - has been cast into doubt following the return of former president Florentino Perez, who has already splashed more than €200 million on stellar signings including Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.

Tottenham Hotspur have been strongly linked with bringing the former PSV star back to London ahead of the 2009/10 campaign.

But Robben has now insisted that he has no intention of leaving Real during the close-season.

"I am very happy at the club, full of confidence and I am really looking forward to next season," he told Sky Sports News.

And when asked if there was any likelihood of seeing him plying his trade in England again next season, he responded:

"No, I don't think so."
