Standard Liege have released a statement to explain the reasons behind why they have sold Zeki Fryers to Tottenham Hotspur.
The transfer has caused Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United to urge the Premier League to block the move to Tottenham and launch a full investigation into his departure from Standard Liege.
A statement on the Belgian club’s website on Friday night read: “The young defender felt homesick and had difficulty acclimating to life away from home and family.
“So when the London club became interested we understood the situation and were not opposed to the return of the player in England.”
