Out-of-favour Croatia ace reveals delight at sealing Kiev switch following a six-year spell in the Premier League, three of which were spent in north London

Croatia midfielder Niko Kranjcar has revealed his delight at completing his transfer to Ukrainian giants Dinamo Kiev.

The 27-year-old has agreed a four-year deal with Yuri Semin's side, which will keep him at the Olimpiyskiy National Sports Complex until 2016.

"I am happy and satisfied, I am moving to a big club and strong league," Kranjcar revealed at a press conference.

"I'm glad that I settled everything before Euro starts because I am calm now and can concentrate on our matches," 

The move will leave him free to concentrate on Croatia's Group C campaign at Euro 2012, after he fell out of favour at White Hart Lane last season.

The Croat joined Harry Redknapp at Spurs from Portsmouth in 2009 and impressed in his first season, scoring 5 goals in 32 appearances but he fell down the pecking order after the emergence of Gareth Bale and only made nine appearnces last season, which was ravaged by a knee injury.
