President and chief executive of AEG, Timothy Leiweke, said in a statement on Friday evening: “The stories that AEG is interested in or has been negotiating for the purchase of Tottenham are untrue.”

“We currently enjoy a very good business and personal relationship with Tottenham and have been involved with a number of transactions over the years. However, at no time have we had a desire to purchase the club.”

"We will continue to have a great relationship with Daniel (Levy) and Tottenham moving forward.”

Is this a smoke screen, or was it just speculations?
