Tottenham's bid to sign Jonathan Zebina from Juventus has collapsed.

Martin Jol was determined to bring the Frenchman to White Hart Lane but Fabio Capello wants to keep the defender at Stadio delle Alpi.

It is believed Spurs will look to resurrect a move in the summer as Zebina has made it clear he will be leaving Turin at the end of the season.

"Jonathan Zebina, unfortunately, fell away last night, with his going to Tottenham," revealed agent Jon Smith from First Artist to Sky Sports News.

"The Juventus coach, Capello, just changed his mind at the last minute.

"So that's gone away."

Zebina has attracted attention from a number of Premiership clubs but Spurs were trying to thrash out a deal this month.
