Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is still interested in Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Willian and Internacional forward Leandro Damiao.

The pair, who both featured for Brazil at international level, were linked with Spurs during the summer and Portuguese boss Villas-Boas has reinstated his admiration for the duo.

Speaking about Willian he told Lancenet: “We contacted Willian and he is one of the players in which we had an interest. I like his style but we could not reach a deal with Shakhtar in the summer.

“Shakhtar are a tough club to negotiate with; they don’t need the money, they can keep their players.”

Villas-Boas also had high praise for Damiao, who was one of the key players in the Brazilian team that won a Silver medal at the 2012 Olympics.

He added: “There are many good players here, we are happy, but we obviously follow the best players and youngsters and Leandro Damiao fits in the profile.

“Leandro was spectacular at the Olympics but there are other interesting players. We are paying attention to his progress but he had injuries after the Olympics and may not have played that often.

“If he is within our reach, he’ll always be in our list.”
