Marseille striker Loic Remy will not be moving to Tottenham according to boss Andre-Villas Boas. He told a press conference: "There was massive speculation today with Remy and that's not the case."
Asked if he could absolutely confirm that the France international will not be coming to Tottenham, Villas-Boas replied: "Yes."
He said: "I've spoken about this player before. Porto is an extremely difficult club to deal with and I think the players' value is over what Tottenham can afford."
The former Chelsea boss also said a deal for Shakhtar Donetsk's attacking midfielder Willian also appears unlikely after initial talks.
"We had initial contact with Shakhtar," added Villas-Boas. "Again, Shakhtar is a wealthy club with a wealthy owner and not easy to deal with.
"'We have approached the club and the player with contacts and at the moment it doesn't seem to be happening."
