Croatia midfielder Niko Kranjcar has spoken of his delight after sealing a move to Dynamo Kiev from Tottenham.

Despite being repeatedly praised by Spurs boss Harry Redknapp, Kranjcar struggled for playing time at White Hart Lane - making just nine league appearances last term.

It was widely believed that he would head for pastures new this summer and he has sealed his future before the start of Euro 2012, freeing him up to concentrate on their Group C campaign.

"I am happy and satisfied," the midfielder said following confirmation he had signed a four-year deal. "I am moving to a big club, a strong league.

"I am glad that I settled everything before Euro 2012 starts because I am calm now and can concentrate on our matches."
