When asked if he ever thought of leaving the club, he told the London Evening Standard: “No, I stay until the end of the season.
“You learned about Schalke because it was in the press but there were many clubs that wanted me and whose proposals were still on the table.
“But I decided with my manager, even before the start of the transfer window, that I would not leave Tottenham and that’s what I did. I have never thought of leaving Spurs. I am here, my family feels great here and I do not see myself in another city."
