Tottenham have told Luka Modric he will not be leaving White Hart Lane at any cost after showdown talks with Daniel Levy. Other reports suggest that the Croatian is furious at the chairman who he believes is reneging on a verbal agreement that was made when he signed his contract extension that allows him to move to any club that would prove a step up in his career.
Elsewhere in the papers there has been a mixed bag of stories that include Barcelona suggesting they are in no rush over Cesc Fabregas; Kenny Dalglish eyes three new arrivals, while Sunderland looking to complete a treble swoop on Manchester united.
