Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Sandro will not be leaving the club in the near future but a move away from White Hart Lane somewhere along the line cannot be discounted, his agent claims.

The 24-year-old has flourished at White Hart Lane following his move from Internacional in 2010, recovering from a cruciate knee ligament he suffered in January to return this season as an integral member of the squad.

In what has been a tumultuous week the north London club have been handed some good news after Angel Leon, the chairman of BaseSoccer who represents the powerful midfielder, rubbished reports linking the player with a move to Serie A.

However the agent did admit a move away from Tottenham in the future cannot be ruled out at this stage.

"Now he is happy, he is fit and he is doing well in London," Leon was quoted as saying by Sky Sport Italia.

"He is playing consistently, even though he knows that in Italy there are several clubs that are interested. But he feels well in London.

"In the future however, never say never."

With his compatriot Paulinho, Etienne Capoue and Moussa Dembele vying for central midfield berths, reports had suggested Roma may look to take advantage with an offer of first team football week in week out during the January transfer window.

But when asked of the possibility of Sandro leaving in January, Leon was dismissive. "In January he will not move. Now he is only thinking about playing and regaining a spot in the Brazil squad for the World Cup."

The now jobless Andre Villas-Boas was forced to take Sandro off due to injury just half an hour into Tottenham's 5-0 mauling at the hands of Liverpool.

To continue the club's woes following Villas-Boas' dismissal, Tottenham were dumped out of the Capital One Cup midweek by London rivals Wes Ham United, despite taking the lead through Emmanuel Adebayor.
