TOTTENHAM HOSTPUR'S director of football David Pleat has quashed suggestions that Stephen Carr is a target of Arsenal.

Rumours have been emanating through London that Carr was ready to follow former Spurs team-mate Sol Campbell to Highbury.

Pleat has now dismissed that Carr will be leaving Spurs for their arch-rivals.

"We wish to banish all the gossip surrounding Stephen and Arsenal," said Pleat.

"He has two-and-a-half seasons to go on his contract and is a highly-rated player at Spurs.

"We can understand some supporters may have concerns about Stephen's future but we can assure them it lies with Spurs."
