Spurs midfielder weighing up offers as Redknapp looks to sell
Giovani Dos Santos has revealed that he is weighing up a number of offers as he edges closer to the exit door at White Hart Lane.
“I still don’t know where I am going but thank God things are going well now and I have some offers,” he said. “I will have to wait and see which is the best one.”
The 22-year-old Mexico international caught the eye at last summer’s World Cup and scored an exquisite chip in a 4-2 win over USA at the weekend to secure the CONCACAF Gold Cup for his country, and earn the man of the match award.
However, Dos Santos’ promising international appearances have been at odds with his prospects at Tottenham.
Having arrived from Barcelona for �4.7million in 2008, the Mexican livewire has played just 20 games for Spurs, with Harry Redknapp suggesting that unprofessional behaviour off the field is to blame for his lack of opportunities in north London.

Dos Santos has consequently spent loan spells with Ipswich, Galatasaray and, most recently, Spanish outfit Racing Santander since March 2009.
And, having scored five goals in 16 appearances in La Liga in the second half of last season, the Mexican is believed to have a number of suitors in Spain.

Dos Santos’ comments about his future come hot on the heels of Redknapp’s admission that he has to sell players before he can bring in reinforcements.
“There is nothing happening in the transfer market. I need to sell four or five players to bring in funds,” said the manager.
“The chairman has made it clear we need to move a few players before we can start doing any business.
“I keep seeing us linked with this player and that, but unless we reduce our squad numbers we will stay quiet in the market.”
