Erik Lamela decides to stay at Spurs


Winger dismisses idea of joining Inter Milan

Erik Lamela has decided to stay at Spurs this summer in order to compete for the Premier League title.

The Argentine has persistently been linked with a return to Italy after initially struggling at White Hart Lane following his club-record £30million move from Roma in 2013.

But the 24-year-old has blossomed under Mauricio Pochettino and has looked sharp on Spurs’ Australian tour.

‘Ever since I came to Tottenham I’ve heard that I am supposed to be leaving,’ he said. ‘It is the same every summer. I do not know why.

‘Even when things did not go as planned at the start, I never thought about leaving.’

Spurs had to contend with the disappointment of missing out in the Premier League title race last season, but Lamela is looking at the positives.

‘Last year we did very well by finishing third,’ said the forward. ‘I feel we can do even better this season.’
