Giovani dos Santos has held talks with Tottenham as he looks to find out whether he will be allowed to leave this summer or if he will feature in the plans of new boss Andre Villas-Boas.
The former Barcelona midfielder has struggled to make an impact in the first team since his arrival back in 2008 and has been sent on-loan on a number of occasions in the last few years.
Dos Santos has spent time at Ipswich, Galatasaray and Racing Santander, and he is keen to leave White Hart Lane for a club where he can find more regular first team football.
The Mexico international has suggested that Spurs need to find a buyer this summer or else he will be able to leave on a free next summer when his contract expires.
Dos Santos would even be able to speak to clubs outside of England in January with the view of signing for them by the end of the season.
"I'm either leaving the club this summer, or I'll sign for another club for free in six months' time, so I am relaxed about my future. " Dos Santos told Medio Tiempo, as reported by ESPN.
However, it seems that he could still be interested in playing for Tottenham if he received assurances from Villas-Boas that he would be featuring in his first team plans.
"Any player wants to play," added the attacking midfielder. "In these three years it hasn't all been bad. I have had good and bad moments but I've also learned a lot. I am surrounded by great players and it is up to the chairman whether he wants to sell me."
