Forward Fernando Llorente suggests that he is happy to remain at Tottenham Hotspur rather than look for a move to another club.

Forward Fernando Llorente has suggested that he is ready to continue as understudy to Tottenham Hotspur teammate Harry Kane.

Llorente has been tipped to leave the North London outfit ahead of the start of the new campaign, having only been given 10 starts in all competitions last season.

However, the Spaniard has indicated that he is prepared to try to take any opportunity given to him by manager Mauricio Pochettino.

The 33-year-old is quoted as saying by the London Evening Standard: "Last year I started with my arm broken and it was difficult for me. Now I am trying to get an opportunity to play games in pre-season. I feel very good physically, and I don't have any [injury] problems. I'm 33 but I'm good.

"When you don't play every week, it's difficult to be fit. It's not easy but I know the situation. Harry is an unbelievable player and he wants to play and always score two or three.

"It's good for the team and I only have to be ready when my opportunity is coming."

Llorente has less than a year remaining on his contract with Spurs.
