Tottenham transfer news; Giovani Dos Santos’s move to Villareal called off after Spanish side are relegated

Tottenham’s wantaway wing man Givani Dos Santos would have moved to Villareal this summer were it not for their relegation from La Liga, according to the player’s agent.

The Mexican has failed to win a regular place in Spurs’ starting XI and rejected a £13million move to Udinese last summer.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is keen to bring in funds to boost a summer of spending and Dos Santos’ days at White Hart Lane look numbered.

“We were very advanced in negotiations with Villarreal so that Giovani could join them next season, but with their relegation everything has been halted,” Vicente Montes told Mexican newspaper La Afición.

Dos Santos has spent loan spells at Ipswich Town, Galatasary and Racing and Montes is adamant where the player wants to be playing his football next season.

“Gio’s idea is to play in Spain,” he added. “He wants to play there because he’s done well, he made progress and he wants to restart his career in that league.”
