Tottenham have failed with bids for two midfielders.

Tottenham have failed with bids for two midfielders.

The Daily Star says Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has been forced to pull the plug on eight-figure moves for Joao Moutinho and Willian.

Shakhtar Donetsk have refused to budge on their demand for more than double the £11.8m Spurs offered for Brazil forward Willian.

And talks with Porto also collapsed last night over Moutinho, with Spurs baulking at his £24m tag.

A source close to that deal said last night: "It will be almost impossible to conclude a transfer in the time available now."
