Reported Tottenham target Leandro Damiao has agreed a new five-year deal with Internacional.
The North London outfit have been strongly linked with the 21-year-old this summer and have already seen a £10.6m bid rejected.
They were expected to return with a higher bid in a hope to secure the signing in time for the new season.
However, the chances of signing Leandro have all but disappeared following the news.
“Plaudits must go to president Giovanni Luigi, who did a tremendous effort to keep him with us for this season,” said coach Paulo Roberto Falcao.
“This new agreement gives us peace and we can now close the talk of his departure.
“Now Leandro Damiao is at a wage level with the most valued players in the country.”
It is welcome news for the Brazilian side who confessed last month that his departure this summer would be inevitable.
