Sandro backing Spurs bid for Internacional star Leandro Damiao

Tottenham midfielder Sandro has backed their move for his former Internacional teammate Leandro Damiao.

The 21 year-old striker's impressive form - 22 goals from 24 league games last season - has alerted the likes of Barcelona, Juventus, Benfica and Roma.

However Sandro believes the £12million-rated, 6'2" hitman should make the switch to north London and join him at Spurs instead.

"He is a very strong guy, he is the perfect size for English football, he can do very well here," said Sandro.

"Not only do Spurs want him, we read that other sides are also interested in Leandro Damiao. Damiao is a guy who is globally known. He's got quality.

"The [Tottenham] directors always talks to me about Brazilian players. They asked me about Leandro Damiao and I told them he's a fantastic guy of high quality. Hopefully we will knock on the door of Inter [Internacional] very soon."
