Tottenham 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.
