Tottenham haven't given up their pursuit of Internacional striker Leandro Damiao.

The Telegraph says Tottenham will return to Brazilian club Internacional with an improved offer for the highly rated forward Leandro Damiao after having an opening bid of £10.3m turned down.

Though Tottenham Hotspur are reluctant to pay over the odds for the youngster, a bid of somewhere closer to £20m would secure a deal.

Spurs remain confident a deal can be struck for less than £20m, especially as they have a marketing and youth partnership with Internacional that was forged during the £9m transfer of Sandro from the Brazilian club last summer.
