The Danmark international first announced his intentions to move after the Champions League final, he told Ekstra Bladet: “I feel that I am a place in my career where I might want to try something new.

“I have the wildest and deepest respect for everything that has happened in Tottenham, nor will it be negative. But I have also said that I would like to try something new.”
