“I was very close to signing for Tottenham, but rejected them due to sporting reasons.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Football reasons are all well and good but it was the wrong decision. Facts is facts Stoke will struggle to make it into Europe whereas we won’t so that said we would have more than found games to accommodate Asmir. Gomes is our number one but there was a lot more to offer the player had he come to spurs but its done now so we move on. Great game last night. Lillywhitetilidie.
