Spurs close in on Sandro deal

Tottenham Hotspur are reported to be close to reaching a deal to sign Brazil international midfielder Sandro from Internacional.

The highly-rated 20-year-old is reported to be attracting interest from a number of clubs in Europe, but his agent in Brazil, Luiz Paulo Chignall, believes that Spurs are leading the chase.

He commented: "This deal is very advanced, although Internacional are yet to receive some important documents."

The player himself added on Radio Gaucha:"I don't know anything. If there would be something true about my transfer I suppose that somebody would have told me something about it.

"But maybe there is something true about me being transferred, but they are respecting my personal moment and that's why I haven't been told anything."
