The 30-year-old has been linked to a move away from Spurs due to a lack of game time and the fans turning against him. However, a move to West Ham on deadline day was vetoed by chairman Daniel Levy as he didn’t want to strengthen a fellow Premier League rival. This has now left the striker stuck at the club until the summer at least.
The ex-Manchester City player said: “The club decided to send me out on loan, which I was pleased with. There were five good clubs interested and I [narrowed it down to] three before choosing the one I wanted. But Mr Levy was against the one I chose, because it was a rival. But I’m very happy to stay at the club and do my job.”
Before this the former Arsenal man was reportedly offered £130,000 a week after tax. This is the equivalent of what a player takes home when earning £245,000 a week in the Premier League. Despite the massive amount of money being offered he still turned down the offer. This goes against the reputation he has gained as a mercenary.
