Spurs, Southampton target Jean-Philippe Mateta: I don't need an agent

Mainz striker Jean-Philippe Mateta says he won't be using agents this summer.

Mateta is being linked with Tottenham and Southampton this season.

And he revealed to France Football: "Many agents call me. I have a lawyer.

"Right now I can't see an idea of having an agent. I've only had one in my career. I'm not interested. They are going to tell me things that I already know. They get to talk to the clubs.

"I mean agents just make money doing nothing. If I have to have one, it has to be someone from my family."
