Brazilian striker Leandro Damiao insists that he is happy at Internacional, despite interest from Tottenham Hotspur in January.

Internacional striker Leandro Damiao has revealed that he is in no rush to leave the Brazilian club.

Damiao was strongly linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur during the January transfer window, and after a move failed to materialise, the Brazilian international has insisted that he is "calm" about his future.

The 23-year-old told Globo Esporte: "I'm calm. I'll certainly leave Internacional one day, but my focus at the moment is on the club.

"I hope to play in Europe one day, it's a dream, but I am also in no hurry to leave. I have no reason to do anything crazy and leave quickly.

"I have had many chances to leave, but I have stayed. I want [any transfer] to be good for Internacional too."

The forward was the top scorer at the Olympic football tournament last summer.
