Tottenham’s forgotton man Dos Santos wants Spain return

Giovani Dos Santos hopes to bring an end to a frustrating four years at Tottenham Hotspur by sealing a move back to Spain.

The Mexican international was considered somewhat of a coup when he joined from Barcelona in 2008 for £4.7 million but has made just two Premier League appearances since after struggling to adapt

Dos Santos has been farmed out on loan to Racing Santander, Galatasaray and Ipswich in recent times but hopes to seal a permanent move away from White Hart Lane in the near future.

Sevilla, Real Betis and Atletico Madrid have all been linked with the 23-year-old and stated he expects to leave North London very soon.

“I want to return to Spain,” he told ESPN Radio. “There is a new coach at Tottenham, a new season is starting and it is clear to me that I want to return to Spanish football.

“I think that I will be able to announce the move soon.”

Dos Santos has accused Spurs of pricing him out of a move elsewhere after he failed to settle in England with the club demanding upwards of £8 million for the winger in the last two transfer windows.

“Tottenham have always tried to sell me for double the price that they paid for me,” he said. “There are offers, but nothing can be made public yet.”

New boss Andre Villas-Boas tied up his first signing since being appointed on Tuesday with Gylfi Sigurdsson arriving from Hoffenheim after snubbing a move to Liverpool and will replace the soon-t0-depart Luka Modric.

Former Chelsea coach Villas-Boas is exoected to tie up the deal to bring Jan Vertonghen in from Ajax before setting out on a summer spending spree after being handed a £80 million war chest by chairman Daniel Levy.
