Giovani furious after Redknapp blocked Tottenham exit

Tottenham winger Giovani dos Santos is furious he didn't get a move out of White Hart Lane this summer.

Spurs blocked a switch to Sevilla this week.

"I was very surprised that with two hours left, my coach has changed his mind," he told Fox Sports.

"In three years at Tottenham I have not been taken into account and there has not been confidence in me at all. So I hope that this time I hear the truth when talking to him and we can get down to football.

"To be honest I already felt at another club, Sevilla, and we had already completed more than 50 per cent of negotiations. Almost everything had been agreed but with half an hour to go Spurs changed their minds, something I found very odd.

"Both myself and my agent have been left disappointed, sad and angry at the way Tottenham have acted.

"After such a long time without having any confidence in me I am now going to get my chance, which makes me feel weird. Even so, I mean to take this opportunity out of respect to the Tottenham fans and also because of the professional I am."
