Transfer news: Andre Villas-Boas has cooled interest in Yann M’Vila
Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas has ruled out signing midfielder Yann M’Vila.
There had been rumours that Arsenal are also interested in signing the 22-year-old defensive midfielder but the Gunners also appeared to have cooled their interest in recent weeks, although the sale of Alex Song may reignite some.
“He is an interesting player, but I don’t think he will join Tottenham,” Villas-Boas said.
“He is a rather defensive player, but I don’t think he will join Tottenham.
“He is a rather defensive player. We are looking for a more creative player. I won’t lie. There was an interest from us in that player, but now we are looking at different options.”
