Tottenham transfers: Tom Carroll wants to ‘make it’ at Spurs
Queens Park Rangers midfielder Tom Carroll underlines his desire to make it at Tottenham Hotspur
Tom Carroll has underlined his desire to “make it” at Tottenham Hotspur amid uncertainty surrounding his future.
The England Under-21 international moved to Queens Park Rangers on a season-long on transfer deadline day last summer.
QPR’s a great club and I’ve enjoyed my time here, so we’ll see what happens
Carroll has made two assists in 25 Championship appearances for the Hoops under former Spurs manager Harry Redknapp.
The 21-year-old has been linked with a permanent switch to QPR, but Carroll still hopes to forge a successful career at White Hart Lane.
“I want to make it at Tottenham, that’s my main aim,” Carroll told the Fulham Chronicle.
“I’ve been there since I was eight so it’s obviously a club close to my heart.
“I’m contracted at Spurs and it’s down to the two clubs to talk.
“QPR’s a great club and I’ve enjoyed my time here, so we’ll see what happens.”
Last month, Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood talked up the qualities of Carroll, as well as on-loan Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore.
“They’re both good players. Jake’s had a good season at Hull. Tom Carroll is certainly one who will come back into the squad next season because he’s good enough for Tottenham,” Sherwood said.
