David Moyes has ruled out the possibility of Tottenham Hotspur target Javier Hernandez leaving Manchester United in January, reports the Daily Star.

The Mexican striker has been heavily linked with a move away from the Premier League champions, having started just two games so far in 2013/14.

With the 2014 World Cup in Brazil to think about next summer, Hernandez is eager to play regular first-team football, which could result in the 25-year-old pushing for an Old Trafford exit.

Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas is ready to hand the striker an escape route, as he looks to add Chicharito to his ranks at White Hart Lane.

Valued at around £15million, Manchester United are bracing themselves for a bid from Tottenham when the transfer window reopens. But, according to Moyes, the player is going nowhere.

"It is not a question for now," he said ahead of the Red Devils' Champions League clash against Real Sociedad on Wednesday night.

"He will play a lot of games before the end of the season."

Tottenham will be monitoring the Manchester United star's situation closely, and if Moyes fails to honour his promise, it might prompt the north London club to pounce on Hernandez in January.
