Spurs won't sell Modric

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy last night insisted it would "make no difference" if Chelsea upped their £22m offer for midfielder Luka Modric.

Modric flew back to London yesterday for showdown talks with Levy after claiming a transfer to Stamford Bridge was still possible. However, Levy was adamant as he left White Hart Lane that Modric was not for sale -- at any price.

Speaking after his meeting with Modric, Levy said: "Everything was fine, we had a very good conversation and as I said previously, Luka Modric will not be sold.

"It's the end of it. There's no further discussion on it. He was on holiday, we've now had the conversation and he understands our position.

"I'm sure once he's back with his team-mates everything will be fine."

Asked what would happen if Chelsea increased their bid for the Croatia international, Levy added: "It would make no difference. This is not about money, we're not selling our best players."
