Real Sociedad striker Willian José won’t sign for Tottenham Hotspur despite the player being heavily linked with a move to North London last week, according to journalist Sergio Santos of Diario AS. The 28-year-old even dropped out of the Real Sociedad squad for the Copa del Rey clash against Espanyol amid speculation of his proposed move. Tottenham’s initial interest in the player came from an injury that leaves Harry Kane out until April. 

West Ham United have shown late interest in signing the Brazilian who now finds himself in a difficult situation after removing himself from his team’s squad and with just over one day to go in the transfer window.
