Tottenham supporters have breathed a sigh of relief in the Football Transfer Tavern.
Key midfielder Sandro has moved to deny speculation that he could push for a summer move to arch-rivals Arsenal, according to sources at The Express.
The Brazilian international midfielder has been left out of the first team in recent weeks by manager Tim Sherwood, with reports suggesting that the pair have fallen out.
Sandro was left out of the squad to face Fulham last weekend, and took to Twitter to reveal it was not because of an injury.
Sherwood responded: “He can tweet what he likes. When he shows me he is good enough he will get into the team. At the moment he isn’t.”
Sandro has been linked with a summer switch to arch-rivals Arsenal since, but the Brazilian has moved to pour cold water on the speculation, and played down any suggestions of a rift with Sherwood.
Sandro responded: “I quietly received the news… I respect him, I have nothing against him, let him speak.
“I will continue working quietly, I’m a professional. I have to work. Everyone loves me at Tottenham, it is my home.
“I’m happy here at Tottenham. If the rival supporters want me to go to their team, I think I’m doing a good job and being recognised.
“Not only rivals, ours too. I just have to thank the fans of Tottenham, they are very dear to me. We have three games and need to work.”
