Tottenham no longer interested in Leandro Damião - report
Tottenham have pulled out of the race to sign Internacional striker Leandro Damião according to reports in England.
Goal.com are claiming that Andre Villas-Boas has called an end to the pursuit after several fruitless attempts to sign the Brazilian.
The website's correspondant seemed to confirm that Damião is off the shortlist this summer as Tottenham move onto other targets.
At least for now, #THFC not trying to sign Leandro Damiao this summer. Looks like it could be over, has dragged on too long.— Greg Stobart (@gstobart) June 12, 2013
The Spurs coach has long been an admirer of Damião's abilities but the reported €20 million price tag has put off the London club in previous windows.
With the Lilywhites short on strikers, it is a priority of Villas-Boas to secure a new signing in that department but Damião looks to be off the table for now.
