thumbnail Hello,

The Brazil international has been linked with many European clubs but maintained he was happy to stay at home and focus on getting a consistent run of games following injury

Leandro Damiao has admitted that Tottenham have made an official offer to sign him from Internacional but insists that he intends to stay in Brazil until 2014.

The 22-year-old has maintained that he is happy to remain at the Porto Alegre club despite being linked with moves to a number of European sides including Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Real Madrid in addition to Spurs.

"I'm glad for the interest and for the enquiries, but the only official offer was made by Tottenham," he told Sportv.

"If there are other offers, we'll talk, but for now I'm not worried. Inter give all the best conditions for our work."

The striker has got off to a good start in the 2012 Campeonato Brasileiro, scoring two goals in his three starts so far this season, and is hoping to put together a consistent run of games in order to earn the chance to add to his nine caps for the Selecao ahead of the 2014 World Cup in his home country.

"I'm in a great moment right now and I intend to stay at Internacional until 2014 unless there is a good offer that is good for Internacional, not only for me," he continued.

"I need a sequence of matches. I got injured and missed some games. I only returned recently, but I've been improving. I had a much better performance against Argentina."

Spurs’ loan deal for Manchester City’s Emmanuel Adebayor and short term deal for Louis Saha both expired at the end of the 2011-12 campaign and while they remain in the hunt for a permanent deal for the Togo international, the club have also been linked forwards such as Luuk de Jong, Loic Remy and Demba Ba.
