Spartak Moscow are looking to keep Quincy Promes amid interest from Tottenham.

Spartak Moscow general director Sergei Rodionov has told Russian outlet Lenta that the club have offered winger Quincy Promes a new contract - and will double his salary if he accepts.
Promes, 24, has become a key player for the Russian side since his 2014 move from FC Twente, as he has smashed 31 goals in two season, despite being a winger.
With 18 goals this past season, Promes was one of the leading stars in Russian football, but his exploits have now triggered major speculation over his future.
The Daily Mail reported earlier this week that Tottenham Hotspur are keen to bring Promes to White Hart Lane, as manager Mauricio Pochettino took time to scout him during recent international games.
With blistering pace and a proven goalscoring record, Promes could be ideal for Tottenham - but Spartak appear to be putting up a major fight to keep him in the Russian capital.
Spartak Moscow's general director, former player Sergei Rodionov, has been speaking to Lenta about Promes' future, and revealed that the club have offered him a new contract to fend off interest from other clubs, with Spurs no doubt keeping tabs on the situation.
Rodionov claims that discussions are continuing, and the offer made to Promes is to double his salary - something which could be a blow to Tottenham's hopes of landing him.
"Negotiations are continuing with Promes," said Rodionov. "I note that Spartak has already offered, in my opinion, a good offer to significantly increase his wages - double his salary," he added.
