Porto midfielder Joao Moutinho insists that he is ready to move on from his collapsed transfer to Tottenham Hotspur.

Portuguese midfielder Joao Moutinho has claimed that he is no longer thinking about Tottenham Hotspur after a move to the London club collapsed this summer.

Despite Porto accepting a £22m bid for Moutinho, the 25-year-old failed to agree personal terms with Spurs and insists that he is now focused on achieving success with his current club.

Moutinho said: "The transfer window is closed but now I am focused on Porto and prefer not to talk about something which may or may not happen."

Despite revealing that he has moved on from this summer's speculation, Moutinho was generous in his praise for Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas.

"Tottenham is not in my head now, although I was flattered by the interest, especially by the coach. Andre Villas-Boas is one of the best coaches in Europe today," he added.

Spurs have collected two points from their opening three league games.
