Joao Moutinho set to snub Tottenham

Goal :    Porto playmaker Joao Moutinho has committed his long term future to the club, amidst rumours that Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is set to return for his services come January.

After coming close to sealing a move to White Hart Lane on transfer deadline day in August, the former Sporting Lisbon midfielder is set to reject any offer from north London, and is said to prefer a future in Portugal over any move elsewhere.

With Zenit St Petesburg also looking to acquire his signature after a costly summer of signings themselves, it was thought that Moutinho could be on his way out of the Estadio do Dragao.
