Giovanni dos Santos' proposed move to Villarreal has fallen through.

The Mexican international was set to depart Tottenham this summer but the move will not go ahead after Villarreal were relegated from Spain's La Liga.

"We were very advanced in terms of agreeing for Giovani to play for Villarreal, but that has all collapsed now because they have been relegated," dos Santos' representative Vicente Montes was quoted as saying on the website of Mexican radio station Grupo Formula.

"Villarreal being relegated has affected everything - the transfer, the wages. It would have been different had they stayed in the Primera Division."
