Tottenham's move to secure Roda JC as a partner club has collapsed.

Roda Technical Director Leon Vlemmings revealed his disappointment that negotiations with Tottenham had fallen through, but hinted that the Dutch side didn't see enough benefit from any potential arrangement.

"If you can do it to your advantage, you should do it, but we must first consider what we want to be and whether it fits within our own strategy.

"First we must make our own house as strong as it can be."
