Transfer news: Nacer Chadli reportedly seeking move away from Tottenham Hotspur to save World Cup hopes
Belgian midfielder trying to secure his place for Brazil
Thursday 16 January 2014
Nacer Chadli wants to leave Tottenham in order to keep his World Cup hopes alive, according to his agent.
The Belgian midfielder only joined Spurs this summer, in a £7m deal from FC Twente, but he has not established himself as a first team regular and has made only seven league starts.
The 24-year-old's agent Daniel Evrard believes his client needs first team football and that a loan move might be the best solution.
"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," he said.
It could be a busy transfer window for Spurs, with reported interest in Etienne Capoue, Lewis Holtby and Erik Lamela for Tim Sherwood to consider.
