Espanyol have rejected reports that defender Daniel Jarque has been in London to talk to Tottenham Hotspur.
Reports suggested that Jarque had travelled to the capital to meet with Juande Ramos about a move to White Hart Lane.
But the Primera Division club have stated that the player has been in Barcelona all weekend and spent Monday morning undergoing X-rays on the toe injury that has kept him out of action recently.
While Tottenham are in the market for new players to bolster their back line, Espanyol claim that the Jarque reports are being used to hide their true targets.
Espanyol are preparing a statement that will deny that the 24-year-old has spoken to another club, let alone travelled to England to discuss the matter.
