Zokora linked with Madrid switch

Zokora is the latest Premier League player to be linked with Real

Ivory Coast midfielder Didier Zokora says he is "flattered" to be linked with Real Madrid, but insists he is happy at Tottenham Hotspur.

Zokora has been pinpointed by new Real and former Spurs boss Juande Ramos as a player he would like at the Bernabeu.

"It's fantastic to be associated with Real Madrid as they are one of the biggest club sides in the world," the 27-year-old midfielder said.

"Show me the player who would not want to be linked with them."

But Zokora signed a four-year contract extension with the north London club in August and insists he is happy under manager Harry Redknapp.

"My team is doing much better under Harry Redknapp and I am enjoying every minute of it.

"For me, this is a win-win situation. I cannot lose."

Zokora joined Spurs from French side St Etienne in July 2006, having previously won the Belgian title with RC Genk.

Ramos has already made one swoop on the Premier League by agreeing to sign Lassana Diarra from Portsmouth for 20m ($30m).

He will join them when the transfer window opens on 1 January.
