London:

Tottenham Hotspur captain Michael Dawson has hit out at reports he is in dispute with the London club over a new contract.

A report in Wednesday's Sun newspaper suggested the 27-year-old defender was furious with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy for offering him a "derisory" pay rise despite breaking into the England squad.

However, in a statement issued by Premier League side Tottenham, Dawson said: "I have no idea where this story has come from - it certainly has not come from myself or any of my representatives."

"I think I have always demonstrated that I am a proud player and captain of this club and nothing has changed in that respect."

"I have an excellent relationship with everyone at this club from the chairman, to the players to the supporters and I wouldn't want false reporting such as this to impact on that."

"There has been absolutely no fallout with anyone whatsoever. I still have four years left on my current contract and have no issues regarding it whatsoever," he added.

"It is an honour to be captain of this football club and my sole focus is on getting ready for the new season with Spurs and, hopefully, England as well."
