Inter Milan midfielder Patrick Vieira has gone cold on a move to Tottenham.

The Daily Mail says Vieira is thought to have dismissed the idea of moving to Tottenham Hotspur.

The France midfielder is keen to leave Inter Milan to get regular first-team football in the run-up to next summer's World Cup.

But Harry Redknapp admitted everything had 'very gone quiet' and Vieira is understood to have cooled on a return to north London partly because it may risk sullying his reputation as a Arsenal legend.

French teams Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain have also shown interest in the 33-year-old, while Birmingham were keen to do a deal earlier in the summer, but Vieira is happy to stay in Italy if the right deal is put to him.
