Andre Villas-Boas defended Spurs’ transfer-window policy and practically ruled out another bid for Leandro Damiao.
Many Spurs fans were left frustrated at the lack of an arrival of a new striker at Tottenham which leaves us with just Jermain Defoe as our only senior striker while Emmanuel Adebayor remains on international duty.
Internacional claimed last night they did not let Damiao leave for White Hart Lane because Spurs’ offer, reported to be £13million, did not meet their valuation of the player.
“We’ve approached this market very sensibly,” the Tottenham manager told a press conference.
“I’ve said in our conversations that if (the Damiao bid) was going to go out of proportion, we would step out of it.
“We have made it public before that he is a player that we chase, but we couldn’t agree on the full conditions so we’ve moved on.”
“No I don’t think (it will happen in the summer),” Villas-Boas said. “It’s probably finished now.”
