Spurs target Leandro Damião not looking for January move to Premier League - report
Tottenham Hotspur target Leandro Damião has reportedly stated he will not be moving to the Premier League in January.
The Internacional striker has been a long-term target of Spurs managers Harry Redknapp and Andre Villas-Boas, who saw a summer bid rejected.
Reports suggested Villas-Boas was set to renew his interest during the January transfer window but Damião has now revealed he is not in a hurry to leave Brazil, according to the Mirror.
The 23-year-old said: "I do not feel the need to move away right now.
"Now is not the time to be thinking about leaving here for Europe or the Premier League."
The Seleção star, who represented Brazil at London’s Olympic Games this summer, has become one of South America’s most highly-rated strikers after hitting 38 goals in 51 games last season.
Howver, Damião has had a frustrating year with Internacional making just 17 league appearances and scoring 7 goals due to suffering a number of injuries.
