Dawson, 27, was said to be upset at the club's "derisory" offer of a pay-rise and weighing up his options, but he has now strongly denied the reports.

"I have no idea where this story has come from - it certainly has not come from myself or any of my representatives," Dawson told the club's official website.

"I think I have always demonstrated that I am a proud player and captain of this club and nothing has changed in that respect.

"I have an excellent relationship with everyone at this club from the chairman, to the players to the supporters and I wouldn't want false reporting such as this to impact on that.

"There has been absolutely no fall-out with anyone whatsoever. I still have four years left on my current contract and no issues regarding it whatsoever. It is an honour to be captain of this football club and my sole focus is on getting ready for the new season with Spurs and, hopefully, England as well."
