The England international has been linked with moves away from White Hart Lane recently after being dropped for Radek Cerny.
However, while Robinson is slightly perturbed with how the whole situation has been handled, he has no plans to quit the club in search of first-team football.
Robinson has laughed off talk that he has submitted a transfer request and is focusing all his energies on winning his place back in Juande Ramos' starting XI.
"If the manager decides that if I'm not performing or I'm not up to the standard that he wants at the time, then he picks the team and you can't argue with that," he told Sky Sports News.

The former Leeds United man has indicated that he would review his future if he was deemed surplus to requirements at Spurs.
"If the club turn around to me and say I've got no future at the club then that's a whole different situation," he continued. "As of yet that's not the situation."
