Friedel's future at White Hart Lane has been in doubt since Tottenham rebuffed an enquiry from his former club Blackburn last month.

And should the Lancashire club bid for the player again in January, Villas-Boas says he will adopt the same stance.

"I don't know anything about (Blackburn's bid). We are trying to hold on to our best assets and Brad is certainly one of them," the Tottenham manager said.

"Brad has been excellent, I spoke to him and he has been such an important player for us.

"Rotation has not been because of performances. Both goalkeepers' performances have been excellent. It gives me the ability at any time to throw a different keeper into the game.

"Hugo will not be involved in (the Panathinaikos) game."
