“Three clubs that are possibly going to be in Europe. Any one of them is a good choice.

“You would assume if you joined Tottenham that you would be challenging in and around that top six next season.
“Celtic, well you know you could be part of that 10, so to have the chance to win that title would be a very attractive proposition as well.
