Niko Kranjcar says it was a tough decision to leave Tottenham for Dynamo Kiev.
Kranjcar admitted he will leave Tottenham with a heavy heart, but said the time was right to move after he grew frustrated at the lack of first-team opportunities at White Hart Lane.
"That club means a lot to me. It has been great," he told Sky Sports News.
"Obviously, he then took me to Spurs. After a great first season, where we made the Champions League and played a lot of matches, the last two were quite disappointing because you want to play football.
"That's what you grow up wanting to do."
