Mexican starlet performed well in South Africa

Mexico international Giovani Dos Santos is hopeful that Harry Redknapp with give him another opportunity to succeed at Tottenham Hotspur next season.

Dos Santos joined Spurs from Barcelona for £8.6 million in 2008, but has been unable to find a place in the team in the last two seasons.

The Mexican attacker has appeared in just seven Premier League games in the last two years and has been loaned out to Ipswich Town and Galatasaray.

The 21-year-old was expected to leave Tottenham this summer but after good performances at the World Cup, Dos Santos is keen to earn a place in Redknapp’s squad.

"Perhaps I arrived at the World Cup in my best moment of the season," Dos Santos told Sky Sports.

"I have always believed in myself and am satisfied with how well I've done out in South Africa.

"During my time at Spurs I just haven't had any luck. There have been injury setbacks, difficulties adapting, and few chances from the coach.

"But I feel I have matured and I am still very ambitious. When I left Barcelona my dream was to be a success in the Premier League - and I still think that is possible.

"I have a good relationship with Harry Redknapp, with all the coaches, so I'm not going to head back there looking for controversy. I'll accept their decisions.

"But I just think I can prove myself here with some patience and opportunities. I need to speak to the club to understand how they look at me - but ideally I want to stay."
