Free agent Constantin Galca wants to remain in Spain, seemingly scuppering Tottenham's bid to bring him to England.

Galca is out of contract and free to move under the Bosman Ruling, and his transfer saga has been one of the features of the Spanish sports newspapers for the past year.

Galca had seemed set to sign a new deal with Espanyol, but his performances in Euro 2000 may have priced him out of staying in Barcelona. Instead, Real Betis are now ready to offer him the right deal to keep him in Spain.

"It is certain that Betis has been interested in me," he confirmed

"Surely they will return, in a moment, to the First Division. Taking this into account, this is the reason why it would not matter to me to play in the Second Division."

Despite their relegation, Betis may be able to tempt Galca to Seville, although the offer from Spurs is believed to be superior in terms of salary.

The player has always stated his intention to stay in Spain, and George Graham may have to look elsewhere for new blood. Spurs' director of football David Pleat has denied making offers for any players in Euro 2000 but the interest in Galca and Emile Mpenza, and even the likes of Boudewijn Zenden and Bart Goor, has been well documented on the continent.
