Dos Santos disappointed at Tottenham

Giovani Dos Santos has struggled to establish himself at Tottenham since joining from Barcelona in 2008 and has made just 10 appearances in the Premier League. It is almost 12 months since he last featured for Spurs and he had hoped to secure a move to Sevilla this summer.

"To be honest I already felt at another club, Sevilla, and we had already completed more than 50% of negotiations," the 22-year-old told Sport.

"Almost everything had been agreed but with half an hour to go, Spurs changed their minds, something I found very odd.

"I was very surprised Harry Redknapp changed his mind, given that in the three years I've been with Tottenham he has not used me or had confidence in me.


"I hope this time he is honest and tells the truth when I talk to him about where he would like me to play.

"Both myself and my agent have been left disappointed, sad and angry at the way Tottenham have acted and after such a long time without having any confidence in me I am now going to get my chance, which seems strange.

"Even so, I mean to take this opportunity out of respect to the Tottenham fans and also because of the professional I am."

Dos Santos has been included in Redknapp's 25-man squad which has been submitted to the Premier League for the first half of the season.
