Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas moves to dismiss speculation that the club will bid for Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk in the summer.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has insisted that it is "impossible" for the club to sign Zenit St Petersburg striker Hulk.

Spurs had been linked with a potential move for the Brazilian international earlier this week, but Villas-Boas has revealed that the club would not be able to afford the 26-year-old.

The former Chelsea boss told reporters: "He was my player and scored 36 goals in one season but it's impossible he will make a move here because of the wages that he earns, which would break our balance.

"He may have options in the summer but to a club like Tottenham his transfer fee is also impossible."

Villas-Boas previously worked with Hulk during his time at Porto.
