Hossam Ghaly admits he still hopes to have a future in the Premier League, despite admitting his days at Tottenham are probably over.
The Egyptian midfielder has not played for Spurs since throwing his shirt to the floor when being substituted by former manager Martin Jol towards the end of last season.
Ghaly was recently given permission to train with his former club Al Ahly in order to build up his fitness and his future at White Hart Lane certainly looks bleak.
"I don't want to leave England in the near future, even though I don't think I could play for Spurs again," Ghaly told the Daily Mirror.
Birmingham almost signed the former Feyenoord midfielder in August but then-manager Steve Bruce sent him back to Spurs after just one training session, complaining about Ghaly's attitude.
