Sulley Muntari has admitted it is unlikely he will leave Inter Milan before the transfer window closes.
The Ghana international has been linked with moves to Tottenham and Fulham but no concrete bids were forthcoming.
Muntari played under Harry Redknapp for one season at Portsmouth and later joined Inter in the summer of 2008.
Last season he joined Sunderland on loan in the January window but the Black Cats opted against signing him on a permanent deal.
But with just over a day left in the transfer window, the combative midfielder insists it would have to be something dramatic now to prise him from Inter.
"I am an Inter Milan player and I expect to still play with this club this season unless something dramatic happens for me to move in the next 48 hours," he told skysports.com.
Muntari's representative Claudio Mossio has confirmed that there is interest from Premier League clubs, but is urging them to move swiftly if they want to conclude any deals.
"Tottenham and Fulham are several of the Premier League teams that are interested in Muntari," he told the Press Association.
"But right now his destination is not unclear. The situation must be resolved as soon as possible because the transfer market ends tomorrow.
"Muntari wants to play in the Premier League. He really likes the tournament and his family would be very happy in London."
