Donetsk deny Spurs´ Willian bid

29 August 2012 16:31

Shakhtar Donetsk chief Sergei Palkin said the club have rejected Tottenham's offer of 15 million euros for attacking midfielder Willian.

Palkin also disclosed Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas is interested in signing two more of Shakhtar's Brazilians, Douglas Costa and Fernandinho.

Tottenham were believed to be close to a deal for Brazilian playmaker Willian, but as yet the two sides have yet to reach an agreement.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is currently in Ukraine personally negotiating the deal according to Palkin, who has previously stated Willian would not be sold for less than 30 million euros.

"Mr. Levy, the Chairman of Tottenham Hotspur, personally flew to Donetsk to negotiate over Willian. But his latest offer was 15m euros, which we, of course, did not accept," Palkin told the club's official website.

"Levy, by the way, hinted that besides Willian, Villas-Boas was interested in Douglas Costa and Fernandinho, but he mentioned that just casually, without any specifics."

Douglas Costa - who mainly plays on the right wing - and Fernandinho, a central midfielder, could replace Aaron Lennon and Scott Parker, with Spurs putting both on the market.

Likewise, Willian could be a direct replacement for a HSV-bound Rafael van der Vaart.
