Tottenham midfielder Niko Kranjcar has insisted he is happy to stay at White Hart Lane and is not pushing for a transfer in January.

 

Harry Redknapp’s side have just had an 11 game unbeaten run end at Stoke, but Kranjcar has not featured for some time.

 

The Croatia international has come out to say that, despite his lack of playing time, he is not looking for a move away from Spurs and wants to earn a starting berth.

 

“I'm not one to knock on the manager's door [to complain],” he said.

 

“I have always said I am happy to be part of the squad at Tottenham because I think it is an unbelievable place.

 

“I would not really be interested if another club came in January.

 

Kranjcar has just returned from an ankle injury – not his first injury problem – and should be in the squad for tonight’s Europa League tie at Shamrock Rovers.

 

“I was out for most of the season so I probably would not think about anything else other than getting into top shape and pushing for a place,” he added.

 

“I really haven't had any thoughts on what might or might not happen in January. I am happy [at Tottenham].”

 

There were rumours the former Portsmouth man was ready for a move to Italy, but he insisted the only thing concerning him was not being involved in Spurs run of victories.

 

“It is the most frustrating thing about being a footballer - being out when the team is playing well. You want to be part of it,” said Kranjcar.

 

“But you try to stay calm and get back as soon as possible.”
