Tottenham hopes of landing Internacional striker Leandro Damiao this summer appear dashed.

Leandro has penned a new deal with Inter today.

"Plaudits must go to president Giovanni Luigi, who did a tremendous effort to keep him with us for this season," said coach Paulo Roberto Falcao.

"This new agreement gives us peace and we can now close the talk of his departure.

"Now Leandro Damiao is at a wage level with the most valued players in the country."

Internacional currently own 70 per cent of Damiao so, unlike some of Brazil's top youngsters, they will indeed have the final say over his future. Tottenham tabled a bid for the striker last month.
