He told The Mirror: ‘First and foremost, I am playing for my future.
‘I don’t think I need a bigger motivation than that. I have settled in very well, I love the lads, and staff and the fans.
‘It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out that my days are numbered at Spurs. I am playing for my future – no bigger motivation.

‘It’s not enjoyable that you are training and you know you’re not going to be playing at the weekend,’ he said.
‘That’s difficult. When my old manager lost his job, that was pretty much the end for me.
‘I spent November not playing, December not playing, and then I joined here in January. It was very frustrating. I wasn’t needed in the manager’s plans at the moment in Tottenham.’
