Tottenham Hotspur will not be pursuing their interest in Rangers full-back Alan Hutton.
Reports on Tuesday suggested that Spurs were set to lodge an improved offer after the defender rejected an £8million move to the North Londoners last Thursday.
However, Spurs have officially ended their pursuit of the 23-year-old.
"We have made it clear that we have no further interest in Alan Hutton," said a Tottenham spokesperson.
Tottenham's defence has been distinctly shaky this season, and manager Juande Ramos is likely to turn his attentions to a fresh target after failing in his bid to lure Hutton to White Hart Lane.
