Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has quashed reports suggesting he will leave the north London club by saying he is 'really happy' to be coaching the Lilywhites.

According to widespread reports, the Italian is currently in talks over signing a new contract after initially signing an 18-month deal - with the option for a further year - back in November 2021 when he arrived at Spurs.

When asked about a new contract in his pre-Brentford press conference, Conte said as quoted: "I don’t want to speak now about this matter in the press conference because I think it’s much more important the game we are going to play against Brentford.

"But what I can tell you is that I’m really happy and I have a really good relationship with the club. We talk every day and we try to find, in every situation, the best solution.

"But I think that we have six months to sit tight, to look at the situation, and then we’ll find the best solution. I’m really happy here and this is very important for me."

Conte spoke about strengthening his team if the opportunity arises.

"What I want the club to do, I think is not right to tell [you] this," he said. "In every club, there is the coach, sporting director, and the owner to try to speak about the situation.

"I advise to my club the way to try to improve the team and the quality in the squad, especially because after five months, the situation has changed from the start of the season.

“If there is the opportunity to strengthen the squad, we’ll do something. You know what is our politics and we try to follow these politics and to improve the team.

“The politics is about young players with not big salaries. We have to sign players that they can stay in our vision of the club here.

“Otherwise, we’ll continue with these players. I’m happy with them.”
