The Venezuela midfielder Juan Arango insists he is not quitting the Spanish Primera Liga side Mallorca to move to England. Local media reported Panathinaikos and Tottenham would be interested in the services of the 28-year-old, one of the key men in his country's national team. "Rumours, they are just rumours. I always receive offers and proposals. Before the beginning of the season, there was something said on Liverpool or Tottenham. Now, they are talking about Panathinaikos and another possibility with an English team," said Arango. "As long as I am not given a concrete offer, they are just rumours." Arango, however, admits that Panathinaikos' progress to the last 16 of the Champions League would be something to consider. He added: "It is one of the best championships in the world. If I have to analyse some offers, I'll do it." *PA Sport
