Dilan Markandy explains quitting Spurs for Blackburn

Former Tottenham striker Dilan Markandy is excited about his move to Blackburn Rovers.

Markandy turned down a new contract offer from Spurs to move to Rovers. He's put pen-to-paper on a permanent deal from Tottenham that will keep him at Ewood Park until at least the summer of 2025.

“I'm so excited to be able to join such a big club with a great history," he told RoversTV after securing his move to East Lancashire.

“Hearing of the interest, it was hard to turn down the opportunity. It really was an easy decision to make and a journey that I can't wait to start.

“Every kid wants to play first-team football and this is a real opportunity for me to get my career started.

“I had a taste of first-team football with Tottenham this season and I just wanted more of it," he admitted.

“It was a difficult decision to leave Spurs, I'd been there for nine years but the opportunity to come here and help the team was just too big.

“I met some great people during my time with Spurs but I felt it was the right time to get out of my comfort zone, seek first-team football and to take that next step in my career."
