Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas is backing their move for Leandro Damiao.

The Guardian says Villas-Boas, who has been scouting in Brazil this summer, admires the Internacional striker Damião and Spurs have a sporting partnership with the Brazilian club.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is a big fan of Damiao and has had multiple offers for him rejected over the last 18 months.
