Bordeaux president Stephane Martin has confirmed Tottenham target Malcom will not be leaving the Ligue 1 club this month.

Malcom, a Brazilian winger, has been heavily linked with a £40 million move to Spurs.

But Martin insists the 20-year-old isn’t going anywhere in January.

“Malcom, it has been said and said again, he will not be leaving,” he said. (Quotes via ESPN.)

“He has said he wants to play in the Premier League one day. That is normal – what player wouldn’t want to play in England? There is no problem with Malcom.”

Former Tottenham midfielder Gus Poyet was named Bordeaux manager last week. He admitted Malcom came up in his interview.

“I asked straight away if Malcom would be staying or not,” he said. “They said yes. I said OK, now we can continue the discussion.”

It seems Spurs will have to wait until the summer if they want to sign Malcom, who has also been linked with Manchester United and Arsenal.
