Huiberts said, “There is a lot of speculation and I read a lot of nonsense stories.

“We received one bid from Tottenham Hotspur that we have not accepted. That’s not so strange to me. It is not often that a club agrees immediately with a first offer. Then we heard nothing more.”

Huiberts was then asked if AZ would make contact with Tottenham themselves, he responded, “No, that’s not us. If you want to buy something, you have to go to the store. The store does not belong to you.”
