"It's my dream to play for Spurs," he said. "I came back for this manager (Harry Redknapp). I think it will be good for me and everybody.
"Sometimes you have a choice, and I chose to leave Tottenham. I spent a good time at Sunderland, but I had some problems.
"I didn't play much, and the manager called me and told me about Spurs' interest. I said 'why not?' It is a good opportunity for me.
"Sometimes when you don't play you're not good in your head. Now, I want to help Spurs finish in the top half."
