The Englishman has told the media why he prefers to extend his stay at Newcastle after his current loan deal.
“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 is probably the first time in my career I have been in this situation never have I been down to less than one year on my contract so it’s a new experience for me. It’s not enjoyable that you are training and you know you’re not going to be playing at the weekend. 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” He said.
