The Chargers, who moved to Los Angeles in 2017, were linked with a move to London on Tuesday.external-link

The NFL staged four games in London this season and has played 28 games in the city since 2007.

"We're not going to London," said Spanos, 69. "We're not going anywhere. We're playing in Los Angeles."

He added: "No consideration has been given to the Chargers playing anywhere other than Los Angeles at the new stadium in Hollywood Park next season and beyond.

"There have been no discussions of any kind between the NFL and the Chargers regarding moving to London. Both our office and the Chargers are entirely focused on the success of the team in Los Angeles."

The Chargers moved to Los Angeles for the 2017 season and play at Dignity Health Sports Park.

They will move to SoFi Stadium in Inglewood next season, which will also be the home of the Los Angeles Rams.
