Tottenham boss remaining uncertain regarding Shakhtar's Willian

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas admits he is unsure if he will again pursue Shakhtar Donetsk's Willian.

The Spurs boss was after the Brazilian playmaker when at the helm at Chelsea last season and also pursued him during the summer transfer window after taking the reins at White Hart Lane.

Villas-Boas was quizzed on whether or not he would look to bring Willian to North London in January but indicated that he is currently happy with his Spurs squad.

"He is an extremely good player but we have to respect what we are doing and the talent we have in our squad and, to be fair to you, I have not thought about January," Villas-Boas told Sky Sports News.

"We have scouts all over the world gathering information but we have not studied January as we have so many players coming back from injury and I think they will be the main players coming in."
