'I have not signed anything yet, but Tottenham are a great club' - Lille's Eden Hazard

The Belgian starlet says he is keen to further his career in the Premier League but insists that there is no agreement in place to join the Spurs in the summer

Lille star Eden Hazard has admitted his interest in joining Tottenham but played down suggestions a deal has already been struck

On Monday, reports in the French media had claimed that Hazard, who has indicated that he will quit Lille at the end of the season, had agreed to a deal with Spurs.

The Belgium international has now said that White Hart Lane is an appealing destination, but moved to rubbish the news that he has committed his future to the Premier League side.

"I said that [his desire to move to England] because I think that I can learn the best there because there are big matches every week, even with the little teams, big matches with great atmospheres," Hazard told Belgian TV channel RTBF.

"[Spurs] is a rumour. It is a club that interests me, of course, because they have great players and a great coach.

"I have not signed anything yet - it is too early. At the moment I want to focus on Lille."

The 21-year-old then stated that a move to Spain is highly unlikely, despite La Liga being to his liking.

"Spain is perhaps the best place for my style of play, but I think that you have to be at either Barca or Real Madrid to win titles there," Hazard added.

"It is harder to play at a big club at my age."
