Kanoute will not return to Spurs

The 31-year-old has been regularly linked with a return to Spurs after impressing at Sevilla.

The Mali international has also been linked with a move to AC Milan.

Mongai told Calcio Mercato: “There is no chance to return to Tottenham.”

He added: “Milan did not get in touch with me, but if they were to call it would be a good chance.

“We will see if they [Sevilla] offer him a new contract at the end of the season.”
