thumbnail Hello,

The 23-year-old has long been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane, and according to his country's Olympics coach, is travelling to Europe to finalise the move

Giovani dos Santos will leave Tottenham and sign for a new club, Mexico Under-23 coach Luis Fernando Tena has revealed.

The 23-year-old moved to the Londoners in 2008, but has failed to win a starting place, and has been forced to go on loan to Ipswich Town, Galatasaray and Racing Santander in order to get first team action.

However, his time with Spurs is soon to come to and end, and although the former Cruz Azul boss knows his destination, he refused to disclose Dos Santos' next club.

"His not being here is not a pretext. He has to go [to Europe] and sign some papers. He asked us to be there in order to fulfil his transfer from Tottenham to another team," he told reporters in Mexico City.

25/1 Tottenham are 25/1 to win the 2012-13 Premier League with bet365.
"He told us which team [he's signing for], but I'm not at liberty to say which. For us, it's much better that he's calm, for him to fix his contractual situation and come back, if not in his best physical form, certainly much better mentally now that he knows where he's going to play."

Suitors including Atletico Madrid and Sevilla of Spain have been touted as potential destinations for Dos Santos, with English clubs Liverpool, Swansea City and recently-relegated Bolton also being named.

Tena also referenced Carlos Vela and Jonathan dos Santos, who declined to heed the call for London 2012.

"With all due respect for those not here, I'm not sorry for them. We don't even remember it, actually," Tena concluded.
