"I am sad to be leaving the club I have spent nearly 20 years of my life at, from an 11-year-old boy to a 30-year-old man. There have been so many great moments and special memories that I will cherish forever. And mostly thank you to you the Tottenham fans. From the moment I have been playing I have been one of your own and I have given everything I possibly could to make you proud and give you as many special moments and memories that will hopefully last forever," he said.

"I felt this was the time to leave. I did not want to go into the season with a lot of unresolved future talk. I think it is important for the new manager and the players to concentrate on trying to get Tottenham to around the top of the table and fighting for trophies."

"I wish Ange (Ange Postecoglou, the coach) and the boys all the very best of luck. Obviously, I will be watching from a fan's point of view now and I really hope the team can be successful."

"This is a message to all you fans around the world, every single Tottenham fan has supported and been with me throughout my journey. I and my family will cherish it forever. We'll never forget all the moments we have had together so thank you. I will be watching the season. Good luck to Tottenham and the whole club. It is not a goodbye because you never know how things pan out in the future. Thank you and see you soon," he concluded.
