Villas-Boas' forgettable stint at Chelsea seemed to do his reputation no harm, with the young manager being linked to several jobs recently.
Barcelona were rumoured to line him up as a replacement for the departing Pep Guardiola while Roma were also reported to be interested in hiring the Portuguese as a replacement for Luis Enrique.
Valencia have also been linked with a move for the 34-year-old, but their press officer, Riccardo Lazzari, has admitted Villas-Boas is unlikely to be joining the Spanish outfit as he has already agreed to a deal.
"I know that Valencia contacted Villas-Boas, but negotiations did not progress because his entourage already had something in their hands," the spokesman told Rete Sport Radio.
"At the moment, I cannot say if Villas-Boas already has contact with Roma or other clubs. The only certainty is that someone preceded Valencia."
Unai Emery is currently in charge at Valencia, but it is widely believed he will leave in the summer despite the club being on target for Champions League qualification.
