Andre-Villas-Boas: Spurs boss has been linked with Neilton

Since breaking into the Santos side, the Brazilian youngster has been dubbed the 'new Neymar' and can play on either wings or as a striker.

And it is this versatility that has attracted attention from Europe, with reports having claimed that Spurs were ready to offer £7million.

However, the 19-year-old refused to be drawn on the rumours and is focusing only on his current club.

"Nothing has come in. I saw the news and I have a contract with Santos until next year," Neilton told UOL.

Santos' vice-president Odilio Rodrigues also revealed that they are looking to extent his current deal beyond 2014.

"There are already talks to renew his contract," he also told UOL.

"They have started and we have scheduled a meeting already.

"We intend to extend his contract, we will talk with his agent and see if we can find something that is good for him and for Santos."
