Forlan rules out Spurs return


Uruguay striker Diego Forlan has ruled out the possibility of returning to the Premier League with Tottenham.

Forlan has been in impressive form during the South Americans' march to the semi-finals of the World Cup.

The 31-year-old has bagged three goals in South Africa and has caught the eye of several Premier League managers.

However, after a disappointing two-year spell with Manchester United which was ended by a move to Villarreal in 2004, Forlan is not interested in returning to England.

Speaking last week, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp confirmed his interest in the now Atletico Madrid frontman.

"Tottenham are a club who are going in the right direction, but I have no interest in joining the Premier League with any club," said Forlan.

"For a start, Spain is much hotter and also it is my home now.

"We have a great team at Atletico and next season we will be aiming for a top-four finish.

"We have some very exciting young players and I'm excited for the season.

"I will never play in England again, but I still actually look back with fond memories at some moments."
