Gudjohnsen eyes Spurs stay

21 April 2010 11:00
Tottenham Hotspur loanee Eidur Gudjohnsen has admitted he would consider extending his stay at the club once his temporary deal expires in the summer. The former Bolton Wanderers and Chelsea forward, who is contracted to French outfit Monaco, arrived in London during the January transfer window and he has enjoyed his Premier League return so far. Gudjohnsen has aided Spurs' top-four challenge and the Icelandic star is revelling in his role under manager Harry Redknapp, after opting out of a projected move to rivals West Ham United. The 31-year-old snubbed the Hammers' relegation fight for a stab at continental qualification and his decision upset Upton Park boss Gianfranco Zola. Speaking to reporters, Gudjohnsen said: "It was like a breath of fresh air coming here. "I'm already tempted to stay if the option is there, it's something we have to sit down and talk about at the end of the season. "We have to go to Manchester City still, it's a massive game and potentially a final for the fourth place. "Gianfranco wanted me at West Ham and was disappointed. The fact he was disappointed must mean he liked me as a player. "I'm sure during his career Gianfranco probably left people a bit disappointed himself."
