Sandro agent quells exit talk

BY foxsports • May 12, 2011

After a slow start, Sandro has established himself as a regular fixture in the Spurs midfield in recent months and has reportedly attracted the interest of AC Milan - who he started against in the Champions League - and a number of other top sides on the continent. However, the 22-year-old's agent Luiz Paulo Chignall insists his client is happy in north London. "Would Sandro like to play in Serie A? Yes, but for now he's good for Tottenham," he told tuttomercatoweb. "Reading the newspapers I see that many clubs are interested in Sandro, like Inter Milan, AC Milan, Roma and Real Madrid. "But I have not received any proposal and no one has talked to me. "I am a bit worried, because no intermediary is entitled to speak on behalf of Sandro. My concern is that someone has spoken on behalf of Sandro, not being authorised to do so." As one of the men playing behind Sandro, Dawson knows better than most what a good job the Brazilian has been doing. "Sandro's performances in the Champions League were great and he certainly makes our job a lot easier," he said. "He sits just in front, wins balls, breaks play up, tracks players and we all know now he can score goals after that strike at Chelsea. He's a top, top player. "He's also a great lad to have in and around the club. "He's still learning English but he's a full part of the banter and everyone loves him in the changing room." Sandro's recent performances have also earned him praise from Harry Redknapp. "Sandro is emerging as a top player," the Spurs boss said after Tuesday's 1-0 defeat at Manchester City. "He's come into the English game and his performance against City's strong midfield was excellent."
