Tottenham star Nacer Chadli wants to leave White Hart Lane to secure his place in Belgium's World Cup squad, according to the Evening Standard.
The Belgian winger has found it difficult to play regularly for Tottenham this season, and is desperate for first-team football in order to ensure he is on the plane to Brazil this summer.
Since joining in the summer, Chadli has started just seven games for Spurs and has failed to make much on an impression in north London. Now, he is angling for a loan move - possibly back to the Netherlands, where Tottenham bought him from last summer.
The player's agent Daniel Evrard has been vocal about his client's unhappiness.
“His situation is not easy at Tottenham at the moment. The World Cup is arriving so it’s a problem,” he said.
“For him to play at the World Cup it’s important so why not a loan? We haven’t spoken to Tottenham yet but I know there are clubs interested in him."
The 25-year-old has scored just one goal this season and is desperate to get a good run of form going before the World Cup squads are announced.
He has represented his country on 18 occasions, but the sudden wealth of young, talented players at Belgium's disposal could throw his place into doubt.
Tim Sherwood has only started the winger once, since taking over as boss at White Hart Lane. But with Erik Lamela, Etienne Capoue and Lewis Holtby all wanting to leave for first team football, it remains to be seen whether Sherwood would sanction a loan deal for Chadli.
