Tottenham have been dealt a blow in their chase for Feyenoord midfielder Jordy Clasie.

The Dutch club have confirmed that they have received a bit from Italian side Fiorentina but revealed a decision will not be made until the end of the season.

The defensive midfielder has forced his way into the national side with a strong of solid performances for Feyenoord and looks to be the next big talent to emerge from the Netherlands.

After coming through the ranks with the Rotterdam side, Clasie has received five international caps and featured in his country's 4-0 win over Romania on Tuesday. The 'Dutch Xavi' was also on the stand-by list for the Oranje's Euro 2012 campaign after not making the 23-man squad.

And with a bid from Fiorentina on the table, Spurs could miss out on the 21-year-old after Feyenoord's technical director Martin van Geel admitted they will not stand in the players way.

He said to Voetbal: "We do not need to sell him, nor we particularly want to, but we have to think of the player's ambitions and evaluate the offers from other clubs."

"There is an offer from Fiorentina, but we'll only discuss it at the end of the season. Right now the players must focus only on Feyenoord."
