It had been suggested that Spurs made a move for talented Porto midfielder Nuno Valente, but the North London club have insisted that those reports are wide of the mark.
Postiga has fired a warning to Spurs, saying he will return from Euro 2004 and seek assurances about his future from new manager Jacques Santini.
The forward has claimed he will look to move on if he is not handed a run in the first team, but Spurs expect him to start the season at White Hart Lane.
"Reports in the press suggesting we have failed in a bid to sign Nuno Valente are incorrect," said a statement on Spurs' official website. "In fact, Porto approached us with an offer for Helder Postiga.
"We have received a lot of interest for Helder but we are not considering any of these offers.
"We expect Helder to start the season at Spurs."
