The former Manchester United man, who played a key part in Alaves reaching the final of the Uefa Cup, had been linked in the press with a move to Spurs, who have seemingly become a far more tempting prospect since the arrival of high profile Glenn Hoddle as manager.
However, Cruyff had only recently signed a new extended deal with his Spanish club, and has reiterated his commitment despite the plundering of many of Alaves' top players this summer.
"I respect Glenn," said Cruyff ."But I have signed a new three-year-deal to stay in Spain."
