Tottenham Hotspur winger Giovani Dos Santos will not be leaving White Hart Lane on deadline day in the January transfer window, according to his agent.

The Mexican has played a bit part in Spurs' title charge, having featured in just four Premier League games this season.

His limited appearances had led to rumours over his long-term future at the club, but his agent Vicente Montes says the 22-year-old is likely to stay put.

"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 Spurs."

"When it comes to valuing Giovani, they place him as a player with big numbers, yet they don't play him," he added.

Since joining Spurs in 2008, Dos Santos has gone out on loan at three different clubs; Ipswich Town, Galatasaray and Raving Santander.

However, the form of Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale has kept Dos Santos continually out in the cold at the north London club.

Dos Santos' form at the summer's Gold Cup was expected to land him a move away from Harry Redknapp's side, but despite netting three times, couldn't secure a move.

The rumoured addition of Junior Hoilett in the coming months could further restrict Dos Santos' involvement.
