Gylfi Sigurdsson spurned Liverpool's advances because he believes Tottenham are a club that is going places, the Iceland midfielder has revealed.
Sigurdsson, 22, had been linked with Swansea, where he was on loan last season, and the midfielder confirmed there was also strong interest from Liverpool, who are now managed by former Swans boss Brendan Rodgers. But Sigurdsson opted to move to White Hart Lane after a meeting with the Spurs' hierarchy.
"I enjoyed playing under Brendan and I am grateful for everything he has done for me, but after careful consideration I liked Spurs best," Sigurdsson told Icelandic website mbl.is.
