Internacional midfielder Sandro is happy to delay his move to Tottenham.

Sandro, who captains Brazil's Under-20 side, is on his way to White Hart Lane after Harry Redknapp took a liking to the player.

Internacional want to keep him on board so he can play in the Copa Libertadores and this scenario suits the South American starlet best.

"It would be good for my career," he stated. "If I play the Libertadores and then leave, no problem.

"I can fit very well into English football. I also like the style of Italian football. Spanish football comes in third."

Brazilian sources insist it is only a matter of time when Sandro leaves for London and Redknapp is likely to want the 20-year-old training with Spurs in the New Year, says the News of the World.
