Chateauroux striker Jean-Philippe Mateta has rejected a move to Tottenham.
The 19-year-old has impressed so far this season, bagging a hat-trick against Le Harve, and Spurs reportedly made an offer for the striker.
However, it was rejected and Mateta's agent Franck Belhassen told Foot Mercato: “On the one hand there is what Jerome Leroy (adviser to the president of Chateauroux) is saying and on the other hand what we are actually doing.
“Concerning Tottenham, it is quite clear that the player does not want to go abroad. He is 19, he does not want to skip steps.
“Few players have succeeded abroad at such a young age. He is a very reasonable boy and well looked after by his family. He knows what he wants to do.
“And Tottenham…as a club they probably have other fish to fry."
