Tottenham signing Palacios grateful to Arsenal

Tottenham signing Wilson Palacios is grateful to bitter rivals Arsenal for bringing him to England.

"I have still got an Arsenal shirt from then but it never had a name on it," he recalled. "Their players were all really friendly there but especially Senderos and Fabregas went out of their way to help me."

Now Palacios has decided to swap seventh-placed Wigan for a side down in 13th.

"Harry Redknapp didn't need to sell the club to me," he said. "Everyone knows that it is a big club and when you get a chance to play on this stage, you take it."
