€15m winger frustrated by Spurs valuation

Published Add your comment

Tottenham midfielder Niko Kranjcar has admitted to being 'shocked' by the club's valuation of him as he aspires to a move away from White Hart Lane.

The Croatia international has been linked with Wolfsburg and Dynamo Kiev, but feels Spurs are putting off any potential suitors with an inflated price-tag.

"I'm shocked about the transfer fee set for me," the 26-year-old told SportskeNovosti.

"It's a price that cools down everybody who is interested. It doesn't matter if the price is in pounds or euros.

"A fee between 10million and 15million is just too much for everybody.


"If Tottenham would be happy with €6.7million (£6m), we could all be happy. But if they keep asking for so much money no one will buy me.

"I know that Dynamo Kiev were interested in buying me, but when they were told about my asking price talks just stopped."

Despite Harry Redknapp's desire to keep Kranjcar at White Hart Lane, the former Portsmouth winger is desperate to leave Spurs this summer in order to find regular first-team football.

The emergence of Gareth Bale last season saw Kranjcar restricted to only 13 appearances in the Barclays Premier League, and he is believed to have told Spurs of his desire to leave.
