Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas admits he regularly speaks with Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi but insists he will remain at White Hart Lane this summer.

Goal exclusively revealed in June that the 35-year-old rejected a lucrative approach from the French champions, who were prepared to meet a £10 million buyout clause in the Portuguese's contract in order to secure a replacement for Real Madrid-bound Carlo Ancelotti.

"I have had a friendship for some time with the president of PSG. He is a friend, [we] speak regularly but my commitment is with Tottenham," Villas-Boas told A Bola.

"It was the club that allowed me to return to the Premier League and I feel good there."

Villas-Boas, who nearly guided Tottenham to Champions League football last season, expects to be backed in the transfer market this summer but another reason for his stay is due to the anticipation of facing Jose Mourinho, who he worked under at Porto, Chelsea and Inter.

"It will be special to play against Chelsea, particularly against a person who was instrumental in my career. It will be great to meet Mourinho," said Villas-Boas.
