A PHOTO taken in St Albans of Andre Villas-Boas with Porto and Brazil striker Hulk sparked internet transfer rumours earlier this week, but the Spurs boss last night [Wednesday] admitted he had not planned to meet the forward.

The Brazilian Olympic football squad, which also includes Tottenham midfielder Sandro, are staying in Hertfordshire ahead of the London 2012 Games.

The picture of the former Chelsea manager with the forward, famed for his powerful left foot shots, began circulating on social media websites earlier this week.

Speaking after his side’s 2-0 pre-season success over Stevenage at the Lamex Stadium, Villas-Boas said: “I went to see Sandro he’s a Tottenham player.

“Hulk is a very special player for me, I worked with him, we achieved in a very good year at Porto and the relationship is there.”
