Mexican set to end nightmare North London spell.
Mexican misfit Giovani Dos Santos will complete his exit from Tottenham this weekend, according to the country’s Olympic coach.
Dos Santos has endured a nightmare four-year spell at White Hart Lane, making just two Barclays Premier League starts since he signed from Barcelona four years ago.
Dos Santos, who will represent Mexico at the Olympics, has been allowed to leave the country’s training camp this weekend to return to Europe, where he will complete a move to an unnamed club, the country’s coach Luis Fernando Tena claims.
“He asked us if he could complete the transfer from Tottenham to another team,” Tena was quoted as saying mediotiempo.com.
“He has to go to sign papers, he has to go to get them sorted out. The most important thing is his mental state. We never had a doubt when he told us (he wanted to go back to Europe). We told him: ‘Go. Do it.”‘
“He told us the name of the club. I can’t say which club, but for us it is much better if he is relaxed, that he gets his contract sorted and that he comes back physically and mentally at his best level, content and knowing that he is going to play.”

Mr Tena is teasing us all. So where will the Mexican international be heading? A move to La Liga seems a distinct possibility and Giovani dos Santos will hope that any move away from White Hart Lane will result in some much needed first team football.
For some reason Harry Redknapp was never too keen on giving the former Barcelona man much of a chance to impress and some may have thought that the sacking of the 65 year old would give Giovani more of a shot at the North London club, but it appears that the talented youngster is still set to leave.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy appears keen to offload some of his squad players and has already sold Vedran Corluka, whilst David Bentley is being linked with a move to Fulham.
Amazingly Giovani dos Santos has managed just two Premier League starts in the four years he has been at Tottenham.
