Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed Tottenham Hotspur are still in talks to sign Roberto Soldado, but there have been no developments in their interest in the Valencia striker.

Earlier this week, Valencia president Amadeo Salvo told Tottenham they will have to meet Soldado's €30million (£25.8m) release clause after rejecting an initial for the 28-year-old, who has also been linked with Liverpool. "Soldado can go if he wants - for €30million and under our conditions," Salvo said at a club press conference. "Valencia never had any intention of selling Soldado. If he goes then it is because the €30million figure has been met, not a cent less or a cent more. "The buying club will also have to accept Valencia's conditions of payment also. "We agreed to meet Tottenham again to discuss the ways of paying and we did that because we understood that his buy-out clause would be met. "Speaking about ways that deals are paid is normal and this will be done in a way that suits the financial department of Valencia and not that of any other clubs. "We listened to him and we said what we have always said - that the price is €30m, then the boy himself can decide if he leaves and that the conditions of pay are what they are."
