Internacional striker Leandro Damiao has reiterated his stance over Tottenham Hotspur, insisting he was right to reject the Premier League side to remain in Brazil.
The 22 year-old had been linked with Spurs for a number of months, and was reportedly the subject of a failed move by the north Londoners in January.
Spurs were believed to have made another opening bid for the player last month of around £14 million, which was again rejected.
Damiao's free-scoring form in Brazil has garnered him a great deal of interest throughout Europe, with a number of clubs reportedly monitoring his movements.
As reported by Sky Sports, while his agent stated that the time was right for the striker to move on, the player ultimately chose to follow his own ambitions by remaining in Brazil, admitting that he was aware of Tottenham's interest.
"I've got Tottenham's proposal, but Inter thought I'd better stay," he is quoted as telling UOL.
"I will try to reach the World Cup playing for Inter, but have to wait for the window to pass and close."
Despite the players desires to remain in his home country and vie for a place in the national set-up, it is thought that Internacional would be willing to sell him if they receive a bid matching their £20 million valuation.
