GDS no closer to Spurs exit

Dos Santos has made just 15 starts during a four-year spell at

White Hart Lane which has seen him shipped out on loan three

times.

Villarreal and Granada claimed they had both bid for the Mexico

international earlier this week, but a deal is yet to be signed,

with reports suggesting both Spanish sides are unwilling to meet

the London club’s asking price for the forward.

The transfer window is due to shut at 11pm on Tuesday and the

22-year-old’s representative, Vicente Montes, says his client is

not near to completing a move away from White Hart Lane.

“Giovani Dos Santos has offers from Russia and the United States

but he has told them that he is not going to play there,” he told

ESPN Raza Deportiva.

“Tottenham told Giovani that Major League Soccer (in America)

had put in an offer for him but the player has other plans.

“As things stand it appears that Giovani Dos Santos will stay at

Spurs.”

Manager Harry Redknapp has made it clear that Dos Santos has no

future at Tottenham, but reports have suggested that the club want

between £4-6million for the player, much to Montes’

frustration.

“When it comes to valuing Giovani, they place him as a player

with big numbers, yet they don’t play him,” he added.

Last summer Dos Santos infuriated Tottenham by turning down a

£13million move to Udinese as he wanted to move to Spain,

which is still believed to be his preferred destination.
