Villas-Boas drops interest in Damiao

Published Add your comment

Andre Villas-Boas has defended Tottenham's transfer window policy and practically ruled out returning with another bid for Internacional striker Leandro Damiao.

Villas-Boas made Damiao his top January transfer target but, despite a last-ditch attempt, Spurs failed to land the 23-year-old. Chairman Daniel Levy's failure to sign Damiao means Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor will be Tottenham's only recognised senior strikers after Internacional claimed Spurs' offer did not meet their valuation.

"We've approached this market very sensibly," Villas-Boas told a press conference. "I've said in our conversations that if (the Damiao bid) was going to go out of proportion, we would step out of it. We have made it public before that he is a player that we chase, but we couldn't agree on the full conditions so we've moved on."
