Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Daichi Kamada, who is rumoured to be on Tottenham’s radar, has revealed that he will not be leaving the Bundesliga club mid-season.
Kamada has been in outstanding form this season, having notched up 16 goal contributions across all competitions in the first part of the campaign but his future at Deutsche Bank Park is in doubt, with his current deal running out next summer (Tranfermarkt).
The Daily Express reported back in September that Spurs and Leeds United were both looking at the possibility of snapping up the Japanese international on a free transfer at the end of the season.
Spurs saw first-hand what Kamada is capable of in their Champions League group-stage clashes against Frankfurt, with the 26-year-old scoring at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Bundesliga club’s 3-2 loss last month.
Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg revealed a few weeks ago that Frankfurt have offered the attacking midfielder a new contract but there have been no updates regarding the matter since.
Kamada has now confirmed that he will not be leaving the German club in January and also admitted that he has held talks with several clubs over the last two years.
The Frankfurt star told Sport1: “I’m staying in Frankfurt this season. Even if there could be talks with other clubs in winter, I’m not interested in leaving immediately.
“I am much more demanding than you think when it comes to the clubs I would like to switch to. There have been talks and contacts with big clubs for two years.”

Reading between the lines of Kamada’s statement, it sounds like he will be careful to join a club where he is guaranteed regular game time. So, I think the Japanese international might be hesitant to join a club like Spurs as he does not naturally fit into Conte’s preferred 3-4-3 formation.
