Spurs snub: Fabiano's agent says the Brazil star turned down a move to White Hart Lane

Luis Fabiano's agent admits that the Brazil star wasn't keen on a move to Tottenham this summer.

Harry Redknapp made no secret of his admiration for the striker as thetransfer window drew to a close but both Sevilla's high price tag andFabiano's huge wage demands proved an insurmountable barrier toreaching an agreement.

The 29-year-old's future has again been brought into question despite signing an extended deal to 2013.

One start in Sevilla's six La Liga games this season has been a source of frustration and Inter Milan are said to be interested, while Spurs have been tipped to renew their interest in January.

But his agent Jose Fuentes said: 'At the moment I have not heard anything from Inter, nor from other clubs in respect to January.

'There's no doubt that the player is down in the dumps. He wanted to leave during the summer, and there were formal offers from Tottenham Hotspur, Marseille, Schalke and Fenerbahce, but they didn't interest us.

'We have renewed his contract until 2013, but now he doesn't play. I don't know the reason - let's see what happens with new coach Gregorio Manzano.'

Fabiano has previously admitted he dreamed of joining Manchester United or AC Milan.
