Kim Kallstrom has played down reports linking him with a move to Tottenham.
Lyon midfielder Kim Kallstrom has played down reports linking him with a move to Tottenham.
Reports over the weekend suggested Tottenham were lining up a move for the talented midfielder.
Tottenham are thought to be in the market for a left-sided midfielder and Kallstrom is believed to be among Martin Jol's transfer targets.
However, Kallstrom insists he is happy at Stade Gerland and is in the dark over the rumours.
"I am focused on Lyon," Kallstrom told Sportbladet.
"I have no idea about it, it is nothing I think about."
Meanwhile, Kallstrom believes Lyon are now back on track after a disappointing run of form.
Lyon came from behind to beat Lille at the weekend and Kallstrom feels the win sets them up nicely for this week's UEFA Champions League clash with Roma.
"It was a boost for the confidence that we won against Lille," added Kallstrom.
"It's perfect ahead of the match against Roma.
"We have been controlling the matches almost all the time. Our big problem has been that we were not able to score goals.
"But we are now scoring on our chances. That is the big difference."
Kallstrom is looking forward to coming up against Roma in the Champions League.
"It feels very exciting," said Kallstrom.
"It's very special to play in the Champions League. There are 16 teams left, the best in Europe.
"Roma is a good side who really play football. For us, it's important to defend well to get a good result."
