ADEL TAARABT has told Tottenham Hotspur that he wants to leave the club.

The midfielder has failed to make an impact at White Hart Lane in two-and-half seasons, where he has yet to start a Premiership game.

Taarabt, 20, spent time on loan at QPR last season and was wanted by Spanish club Malaga in a loan-to-buy transfer.

“Malaga do not have the funds to agree a fee,” he told Moutakhab.net. “Malaga wanted me to join on loan with the option to buy.

“Spurs’ president agreed the transfer, but the problem is Harry. I contacted him and said ‘listen to the offers coach. I’ve been here for two years and never really have a chance’.

“There are clubs that want me who are ready to give me a chance. I want to improve and prove my talent. If I stay at Tottenham I wouldn’t be able to do that. I want to leave.

“The manager has said that if I want to leave then it has to be a permanent transfer. I said there are clubs that want me, but you’re asking for €5million or €6million when you could sell me for €3million.

“Even if I went to Malaga for one season I could showcase my talent and gain more experience. I could generate interest from other clubs, either way I want to leave Tottenham.”

Should Spurs sell Taarabt and use the money on better players?  Whatever your view, express it below.
