Roma striker Pablo Osvaldo's former agent has stated Tottenham Hotspur can forget any plans they had of making a summer approach for the Italy international.
Andre Villas-Boas's side are in the market for a forward and Osvaldo is understood to be one of their top candidates, along with long-time target and Internacional star Leandro Damiao. However, the 27-year-old's friend and former representative Dario Decoud claims the Giallorossi would not consider selling the striker in the near future.
"Osvaldo is very focused and wants to finish this season well. Pablo wants to repay the faith shown in him by [manager Auerlio] Andreazzoli. I know for certainty that Roma consider him a key player and virtually non-transferable," talkSPORT quoted Decoud.
Osvaldo, who joined Roma from Espanyol in 2011, has scored 11 goals from 22 Serie A appearances this season. The Argentine-born Italian has over three years left on his current contract.
Bale Rules Himself Fit for Croatia Game
Meanwhile, Spurs winger Gareth Bale has ruled himself fit to face Croatia for the World Cup qualifier game on Tuesday, despite failing to feature in the second half of Wales' match against Scotland on Friday.
"Just clearing the air... nothing wrong with my ankle. I came off at HT due to the stomach virus I've had all week. Should be ok for Tuesday. Great win by the lads tonight, hopefully we can take this on to the next game," the 23-year-old tweeted.
However, Wales boss Chris Coleman's comments after the game contradicted Bales' words.
"It won't be easy, it'll be a toughie [to get him fit]. But we've got 72 hours or there or thereabouts to try and get him back and see what he's like. But we'll see. He's had a crack on the ankle. He's probably a little bit weak, or not in terms of physical levels, but he said he was good enough to play so we trusted that," Coleman said.
