Ipswich Town have denied claims that hot prospect Connor Wickham could be on his way to Tottenham.

Reports had suggested that the fact that the young Spurs duo of Andros Townsend and Jake Livermore are on loan at Portman Road, could be part of a wider deal which could bring Wickham to White Hart Lane.

Keane said: “It’s nonsense, absolute nonsense.

“If you think that’s part of the deal for us getting young boys in, you don’t know me that well. We don’t need to work that way, we don’t have to work that way.”
