Tottenham defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto has admitted that he would not be against leaving the club at the end of the season if a bigger club tried to gain his signature.
The left-back has spent six seasons at White Hart Lane since moving from Lens in 2006 and has been a regular member of the first team under current boss Harry Redknapp.
Assou-Ekotto has been one of the most consistent performers in a Tottenham defence that has had to cope with a number of injuries to key performers such as Michael Dawson and Ledley King.
However, the 28-year-old has hinted that his future could lie away from Tottenham if there is an offer from a more established European club.
"Everything is possible. When I met the chairman last January he told me that, if a club bigger than Tottenham came in for me, he wouldn't necessarily be against my departure," Assou-Ekotto told France Football, as reported on espn.
"If there is a change at Tottenham - some more money is made available - I wouldn't be against the idea of staying, but otherwise I'll try to move forwards, as I did when I left Lens."
Tottenham have only once qualified for the Champions League since the reincarnation of the European competition and Assou-Ekotto has suggested that he would like to play for a more established club.
Asked if he would like to play for a team that regularly competes in the Champions league, he answered: "Yes. All players want to play in this competition.
"A few months ago, I said I never wanted to play in the Europa League because that competition is useless.
"I have a gentleman's agreement with the chairman. As he is a man of his word, I hope that will make things easier if a great club comes in."
