Spaniards say Tottenham playmaker is no longer a transfer target

Sevilla have declared that Tottenham's out-of-favour playmaker Giovani dos Santos is no longer a transfer target for the January window. The Spanish club were interested in striking a deal for Dos Santos during the summer but could not agree a fee with Spurs. They believe Tottenham's valuation of the Mexico international is still too high and have switched their focus to strengthening other areas of the squad. "He is now not a target for us because his price is superior to the market value," Sevilla president Jose Maria del Nido told radio station SVCF. "It is true that the coach has demanded this footballer but now we are searching for a different type of player. "If we spend money in January the chances are it will be a forward." Dos Santos has been at Spurs since 2008 but remains a long way down the pecking order under Harry Redknapp and has had loan spells elsewhere in each of his three full seasons with the London club.
