Kranjcar has started only four games in all competitions for Spurs this season after struggling to get into the team ahead of the likes of Gareth Bale and Luka Modric.

The Croatia international has underlined his importance to Spurs when he has played, however, by scoring winning goals against Bolton and Sunderland last month.

However, the 26-year-old is disappointed to only be playing a bit-part role under Harry Redknapp and is ready to consider his future in the summer.


"I will be trying to find a football club where I can play regularly, like any footballer would," said Kranjcar after Croatia's 0-0 draw with France on Tuesday.

"It depends who wants me, if anyone wants me."

He added: "I obviously miss football. I'm not in my best shape because I don't play week in, week out. So obviously those 90 minutes (against France) help towards getting fitter and hopefully get some more chances.

"I'm ambitious, I want to play football. Especially in my best years.

"If I was a young lad, obviously I would wait for my chance, especially being in a big club like Spurs. But, obviously, 27, 28, 29 years is, I think, the best footballing years.

"Everyone knows I can play at the highest level, week in week out. I'll only come on as a sub (at the moment).

"It's not mine to (question) the manager's decision, it's mine to respect and to wait for my opportunity and my chance.

"He's the one who takes the blame for good and bad results, and obviously it's going great this season again."
