The representative of free agent Ciprian Marica has revealed a move to Tottenham has fallen through.

Marica's agent, Victor Becali, now expects his client to make a permanent switch to Spain after failing to conclude a transfer to White Hart Lane with Rayo Vallecano interested.

"Marica's transfer to Tottenham failed," Becali told Dolce Sport.

"Rayo cannot pay the salary, nor can they approach half the salary that he had in Schalke.

"Very few teams in Spain can pay well, but Marica is now in Madrid."
