Isco has ended Tottenham Hotspur's hopes of signing him on deadline day.

The White Hart Lane outfit have been keen to secure the services of the Real Madrid midfielder as they look to bolster their squad with Champions League football on the agenda this season.

Malaga were also keen on Isco, as they looked to take him on a loan agreement to hand him the regular minutes on the pitch the midfielder might not receive at Real Madrid.

But Isco insists he is not leaving Los Blancos.

Asked about a move away from Real Madrid, Isco was quoted as saying by AS: "I'm staying, I'm staying."


Spurs will now have to look elsewhere for signings on deadline day, as the club look to hand Mauricio Pochettino reinforcements.

The White Hart Lane club, who finished third in the Premier League last season, have also been linked with Newcastle United's Moussa Sissoko and Schalke's Max Meyer.
