Fernando Llorente says leaving Tottenham never crossed his mind

Fernando Llorente says he has not considered leaving Tottenham, despite playing second fiddle to Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son.
England captain Kane remains out after damaging his ankle ligaments against Manchester United on January 13, with Son starting up front in his absence.
Fenerbahce and former club Athletic Bilbao were among a number of clubs keen to sign Llorente in the January window.
"I don't know anything," Llorente told the Independent, when asked about a move away. "The truth is I'm very satisfied here in Spurs, I haven't thought about leaving.
"I'm at a great club, I still have a contract, and my intention is to win trophies here. Right now, I'm enjoying a good moment, and I hope I can keep scoring goals and everything keeps going well."
Llorente came off the bench to score Spurs' third goal against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on Wednesday, giving them a three-goal advantage to take into their Champions League last-16 second leg.
"To be honest, I was dreaming of that goal," he added. "This season and last season, I was on the bench a lot of the time, and always I tried to score.
"It had been a while since I'd come off the bench to score, so it was satisfying, and all the more so that it was Champions League.
"The important thing is to help whenever I'm called upon, and keep working hard."
