Agent: Dos Santos staying put

The Mexico international has made just four substitute

appearances in the Premier League this season and is keen to move

in order to play more regular first-team football.

Villarreal had been in talks to sign the 22-year-old earlier

this month, while Granada have also been linked with a move for the

former Barcelona youngster.

However, Dos Santos’ representative Vicente Montes says his

client is not near to completing a move away from White Hart Lane

before Tuesday’s transfer deadline.

“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


Manager Harry Redknapp is ready to let Dos Santos go, 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 Giovani turned down a £13million move to

Udinese as he wanted to move to Spain, which is still believed to

be his preferred destination.
