Leandro Damaio January move unlikely

Spurs target Leandro DamaioTottenham target Leandro Damaio is unlikely to leave Internacional during January, according to his agent.

The Brazilian has been strongly linked with Spurs for some time, with manager Andre Villas-Boas thought to be a fan of the striker.

Some have speculated that a deal could be concluded later this month, with player believed to open to a move to the Premier League.

But, his agent Vinicus Prates has played down talk of his client moving clubs, dismissing any links as mere speculation:

“I have not received any offers, I can assure you.” He is quoted by Brazilian newspaper Zero Hora via talkSPORT.

“It is normal to see rumours because he is a fashionable player in Europe but I don’t think he will leave in January because he is happy at Internacional and under contract until 2015.”

It has been reported that the White Hart Lane-based club are preparing a £15m bid as they look to add to their threadbare attack.

With Emmanuel Adebayor set to represent Togo at the Africa Cup of Nations, Villas-Boas will be left with Jermain Defoe as his only senior, centre-forward option.

This has prompted rumours that the Londoners may dip into the transfer market, however a move for Damaio now appears to be unlikely.
