Tottenham midfielder Chadli rebuffed Swansea move in transfer window

Tottenham midfielder Nacer Chadli told the Daily Mirror that he snubbed the opportunity to join Swansea City on loan in January. The 24-year-old admits he considered taking in a spell elsewhere, following a frustrating time in north London, but ultimately decided to stay put and prove his worth to new boss Tim Sherwood.

"It was a possibility, but it is in the past.

"I had to make a decision and my decision was to stay. Everything was not clear so I wanted to stay at Tottenham and play for my club. I have signed for five years and I'm happy.

"When I came to Spurs, I knew I wasn't going to play in every game as we have 60 matches in a season.

"I came and got injured, played, got injured again and so I haven't played as much as I have wanted, but we have a big squad with a lot of good players and we have to compete with each other. I have to work hard in training and show it when I play."
