Tottenham assistant manager Kevin Bond insists the clubs stance won’t be affected by Luka Modric’s transfer request.

Modric has been subject to intense speculation regarding his future this summer and is keen on a move to rivals Chelsea.

The Blues have seen two bids of £22m and £27m rejected as Spurs look to hold onto their star man.

Bond believes that, while the saga has to be sorted between Modric and Daniel Levy, any request won’t alter the chairman’s already strong resolve.

“If he’s handed in a transfer request, he’s handed in a transfer request,” said Bond.

“The chairman will do what he wants to do with that but his line so far has been pretty clear – he won’t allow Luka to leave the club.

“He wants to keep all our best players so I’m not sure that makes any difference to our situation at the moment.

“It’s a situation that Luka Modric needs to clear up with the chairman and we need the season to get under way with everybody pulling in the same direction, all of the players, everybody pulling in the same direction.

“Hopefully by the time the season gets under way and this situation gets sorted out, that’s exactly what will happen.”

Reports suggest that a foot injury kept Modric out of Spurs 1-0 defeat to Kaizer Chiefs today.
