Schalke goalkeeper Manuel Neuer says he is not interested in leaving the club despite reported interest from Barcelona and Tottenham.
Neuer's spectacular UEFA Champions League performance against Porto has put him in the international spotlight and that has seen Barca's Frank Rijkaard take a close interest in his progress.
Spurs chief Juande Ramos was already aware of Neuer and was scouting him before his brilliant display in Oporto.
However, the 21-year-old remains committed to the Schalke cause.
Neuer came through the Schalke ranks to make his first team debut last year, and he say he is not looking to leave Gelsenkirchen in the near future.
"I haven't heard anything about it," he told Bild.
"If it were true then I would be flattered, but my heart is here at Schalke and I'm not wasting any thoughts on any other clubs."
