Tottenham Hotspur have not made contact with Santos sensation Neilton.

The Brazilian starlet – dubbed ‘the new Neymar’ – has been earning rave reviews since breaking into the Peixe side earlier in the year.

It’s led to speculation over a move to Europe, with some reports claiming Spurs are ready to offer £7million for the player, according to Sky Sports.

However, the 19-year-old playmaker – who can play either on the wing or up-front – has played down the reports, claiming ‘nothing has come in’ and that he’s focused on life at Santos.

"Nothing has come in. I saw the news and I have a contract with Santos until next year," Neilton told UOL.

The player is contracted to Santos until 2014, but vice-president Odilio Rodrigues has revealed that the club are looking to extend his current deal.

"There are already talks to renew his contract. They have started and we have scheduled a meeting already,” he told UOL.

"We intend to extend his contract, we will talk with his agent and see if we can find something that is good for him and for Santos."

Tottenham Hotspur boss Andre Villas-Boas has already added a Brazilian this summer, with Paulinho moving to White Hart Lane from Corinthians.

Neilton would add to AVB’s attacking options if he were to move to north London, but at this stage a deal does not look to be in the offing.
