Sandro chooses Spurs over Inter and Roma

Tottenham midfielder Sandro is aware of interest from Serie A giants Inter and Roma but would rather stay at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham's Brazilian international Sandro is a reported target for Inter and Roma but insists that he is happier at Spurs.

The 24-year-old hasn't enjoyed as much first-team playing time as he would like this season, which has prompted speculation he may be open to a move.

The Italian press have frequently suggested that Inter and Roma are both keeping an eye on Sandro and could swoop in January.

But it seems that the player is settled in North London and doesn't have any intention of relocating to Serie A right now.

"I know that Inter and Roma want me. I've heard about their interest," Sandro told Radio Bradesco Esportes FM. 

"But I'm happy at Spurs and there has been no concrete contact. I can say that it is always nice to be wanted though.

"Will I return to Brazil? It's early to do that, I would only go back to end my career."

Sandro concluded by discussing the dismissal of manager Andre Villas-Boas, which some people suggested may unsettle him.

"We set the target of winning the league even if the real target is Champions League qualification," he said.

"I feel that the sacking of Villas-Boas wasn't entirely right but in football it is the results that count."
