Sandro flattered by Spurs interest

The 20-year-old enforcer has made 34 league appearances for the Brazilian outfit since progressing from the youth ranks in 2007.

And his impressive form recently led to him being called up by national team boss Dunga, who handed the youngster his Brazil debut in a World Cup qualifier against Chile.

As a result, Sandro has been linked with a move away from South America, with Spurs, Barca and Real all believed to be interested in securing his services.

Reports had claimed that Tottenham were close to agreeing a £14 million deal for the player.

And after Tottenham boss Redknapp revealed he is an admirer of the Samba star, Sandro has retorted, saying he would be willing to link up with the high-flying Premier League side.

"I am aware that clubs have watched me and read about Tottenham's interest, which is very flattering," he said in The Mirror.

"The Premier League is a great challenge for any player so I will look at any offers from England but my club will decide my future."
