Cape Town - SuperSport United midfielder Morne Nel is satisfied with his current circumstances and is in absolutely no rush to make a move to the English Premier League.

Nel, who recently visited Tottenham Hotspur, said that while he was impressed by the facilities and the technical team at the club, his business at Matsatsantsa was not yet complete.

Nel, who is still teenager, has been at the Pretoria-based club for the greater part of the past two seasons and has featured prominently in both campaigns.

However, he does believe that he can still achieve more at SuperSport, who are currently undergoing a fascinating transition under the tutelage of Gordon Igesund.

"Everything went well for me in London. I've got nothing to complain about, but the weather was very cold. However, overall I really enjoyed myself there," Nel told

"I trained with both the Hotspurs reserve and first teams. The coaches were friendly, they made me feel at home. I had fun as it was nice working with them.

"Yes, I've learned a lot. I learnt to be as professional as possible, and work very hard in order to become a better footballer than I am at the moment on the field.

"Yes, I am more than ready to play in the English Premier League when the opportunity comes, but at the moment I am with SuperSport, and my focus is here."
