Spurs winger Chadli doesn't regret turning down Swansea

Tottenham winger Nacer Chadli has no regrets turning down Swansea City last month.

Chadli has made just eight Premier League starts since his arrival, with the club's mass of midfield bodies and a couple of injuries having disrupted his first campaign in English football.

Yet, despite being offered a more regular platform at the Liberty Stadium, and with a place in Belgium's World Cup squad on the line, the 24-year-old opted to stay with Spurs.

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

"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."
