Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas admits he's keen on Valencia striker Roberto Soldado.

Villas-Boas maintains Spurs are still in the race despite director of football Franco Baldini failing to agree a fee with the La Liga outfit on a recent visit to Spain.

"There is interest in the player, no matter what happened in the last couple of days.

"He is a quality player, he has done well at Valencia for the last few seasons.

"He has had a good education from the Real Madrid school and he is a player which we interested in adding."
