Tottenham central defender Vlad Chiriches has admitted he is unsettled at the club after failing to get enough games under head coach Mauricio Pochettino.

The Romanian central defender has struggled to force his way into the new manager's selection thoughts, playing only three times this season despite Spurs looking fallible in defence.

Injury had hindered the former Steaua Bucharest defender's pre-season, and an auspicious appearance in the Europa League at home to Besiktas where Chiriches looked all at sea from the first minute to the last.

His disastrous performance culminated in his missed interception and handball that led to Besiktas getting a penalty to equalise the tie at White Hart Lane. Demba Ba scored from twelve yards and Chiriches has not been seen since.

The Romania captain has been linked with a move to Italy and did little to play down a move away from North London.

"I dont know anything about the links but I cant say I'm happy at the club because I'm not in the team," the defender told Sky Sports. "It's hard for me but I think I can improve my game and play."

With new signing Federico Fazio jumping ahead of Chiriches in the pecking order, Younes Kaboul now club captain, and Jan Vertonghen generally thought of as the most talented of the quartet, Chirches opportunities look limited.

Add a rumoured move for former Pochettino player Hector Moreno, of Espanyol, a transfer may be the best for all parties.
