Tottenham set to make renewed bid after previous knock back

Tottenham Hotspur are still tracking Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao and have had at least one bid rejected for the 23 year old.

The Daily Telegraph believes Spurs are still keen on the frontman, who is valued by Internacional at £20 million.

A deal for Damiao could signal the end of Jermain Defoe’s stay at White Hart Lane, with Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas said to be keen to offer 19 year-old Harry Kane some first team opportunities.

Tom Huddlestone’s move on loan to Stoke comes at a time when Michael Dawson and Luka Modric are close to deals out of Spurs. The future of Jermaine Jenas, Giovani Dos Santos, Heurelho Gomes, David Bentley and Rafael Van Der Vaart is also uncertain.
