An unattributed article quoted Young as saying: "If you don't get opportunities, you have to look elsewhere."
The England under-21 international told the official website: "I don't recall saying anything to anyone. I'm happy at the club and I've just got to bide my time. I've been out for a month so there is no reason to complain about my lack of chances because I've been injured.
"I'm just going to wait for my chance and hopefully when I get it I'm going to grab it with both hands. Try and make it very hard to take me back out."
Young hit the comeback trail on Tuesday evening, following a foot injury, in the reserves impressive win over Southampton and suffered no adverse reaction.
"I didn't feel too bad, my foot was alright and I just felt stiff due to the fact that I've only trained twice and that was my first game in about a month."
With a home game against Derby looming, Young is aiming for a return to the first team scene. "Obviously I always want to play, but I think I've got to up my fitness a bit first. We played well tonight, the lads needed it because we've not been performing in the league so we needed a win to kick-start the season really."
Luke Young hotly denies a report in Tuesday's Sun newspaper which suggests he will be seeking a move away from White Hart Lane at the end of the season if his first team chances do not increase.
