Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas hasn't shelved plans to sign Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho.

Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas hasn't shelved plans to sign Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho.

The Telegraph says Villas-Boas is mulling over whether to make an attempt to sign midfielder Moutinho from his former club Porto.

He had considered a move for the Portugal international when his attempts to sign Tottenham ace Luka Modric floundered but quickly accepted that the asking price, far in excess of £30 million, was too high.

With Porto out of the Champions League he might return to the deal but it is still considered unlikely at this stage. A move for Everton’s Jack Rodwell is also being considered.
