Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas has travelled to watch former side FC Porto, fuelling rumours that the north Londoners will make another move for Joao Moutinho.

Spurs missed out on the 26-year-old in the summer but reports have suggested that a move could take place in January.

On making the trip to see Porto, Villas-Boas said: “Whenever Porto are close to the place where I am, I go see them.

“I went to see them last season against Manchester City and took the opportunity to go and see them again against PSG.

“It was a tiring trip, but good to see people that are important to me.”
