Kranjcar leaves Spurs for Dynamo Kiev

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Niko Kranjcar has confirmed that he will be leaving Spurs for Ukrainian side Dynamo Kiev after the European Championships. Kranjcar, who after a couple of brilliant seasons at Portsmouth was bought by Tottenham for £2.5 million, has not been able to live up to his billing at White Hart Lane, with first team opportunities too, coming few and far between for the 27-year old.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp too, has at times regretted not being able to field Kranjcar more due to Gareth Bale's emergence, and only recently suggested that he was not looking to sell the player. Kranjcar however seems to have grown frustrated with his peripheral role at the club and has taken matters into his own hands, and on Wednesday told Croatian website that he was indeed seeking new pastures.

"The clubs have agreed. Now all that remains are some small details as I agree personal terms,'' the Croatian international said. "I personally am not involved with that. I have left that to the people that represent me as I am concentrating on the Euros.''

Kranjcar, who is currently part of the Croatian side pitted against the likes of Spain and Italy in Group C of the Euros' group stage, admitted only last month that the financial benefits of playing in Russia and Ukraine attracted him to those leagues.
