Assou-Ekotto drops Spurs quit hint

Published Add your comment

Benoit Assou-Ekotto has stunned Tottenham by admitting he could leave White Hart Lane this summer as part of a gentleman's agreement with chairman Daniel Levy.

Assou-Ekotto has been one of Spurs' most consistent performers this season, helping the Londoners climb to fourth in the Barclays Premier League table with one match of the season remaining.

"Everything is possible," Assou-Ekotto told France Football. "When I met my chairman last January, he told me that if a club bigger than Tottenham came for me, it (the club) would not necessarily be against a departure. With my chairman, there was a gentleman's agreement. As he is a man of his word, I hope it will make things easier if a great club comes in."
