The Iceland international was impressed by the club’s plans for the season ahead
Tottenham’s new signing Gylfi Sigurdsson has explained why he decided to sign for Spurs over Liverpool.
There had been a lot of speculation linking the Iceland international with a move to Anfield to link up with former Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers, who he worked with in Wales.
“I enjoyed playing under Brendan and I am grateful for everything he has done for me, but after careful consideration I liked Spurs best,” Sigurdsson told Icelandic website mbl.is.
“The team has world-class players in their ranks and they play good football, which I like.
“I was impressed with the club’s plans for next season and the coming years.
“There is clearly great ambition at Tottenham and the club intends to do big things.
“It is a pleasure to see that Gareth Bale has signed a new contract.
“There are top players in the team and the club is getting a new training ground.”
