Tottenham midfield ace Sandro has admitted that he would like to play in Serie A in the future but is more than happy to keep playing for Spurs at the minute.

 Sandro endured a slow start to life in the Premier League following his £8 million move from Brazilian outfit Internacional in 2010.

 But after finally settling at White Hart Lane, he became a prominent figure in Harry Redknapp’s reign and has continued to blossom under current manager Andre Villas-Boas, establishing himself as one of the first names on the team-sheet.

 Speaking to cited by Sky Sports, Sandro said: "A future in Italy for me? Right now my goal is to recover and think about my team Tottenham.

"Italy has one of the toughest leagues in the world and all players want to play in a league of that level.

"But the Premier League has some of the best players in the world and I feel happy to play in England."

Linked with a move to Italy in the past, Sandro signed a contract extension at Spurs in 2011 that keeps him at the club until 2016.

And with his recent performances winning him rave reviews, it seems unlikely that the 23-year-old will move to Italy just yet.

A serious knee injury sustained in January has kept the fearless defensive midfielder out of action for the season but he hopes to be fit for the start of the new campaign in August, with Scott Parker, who not long ago returned from a long-term injury himself, deputising in Sandro’s absence.
