Juventus winger Milos Krasic has signalled his intent to leave the Serie A side in the summer, alerting former suitors Tottenham.

The north London side put in a loan offer for the Serbia international during the January transfer window, as did Russian side Zenit St Petersburg, and he was also linked with Chelsea. Krasic instead opted to remain in Turin and fight for his place on the Juve team.

Now the 27-year-old is lamenting his decision to stay after starting just four Serie A games this season under manager Antonio Conte, and is determined to leave at the end of the campaign.

"It is obvious there is no room for me, I was written off," Krasic told Serbian newspaper Vecernje Novosti. "There is nothing new, I'm training the best I can, I want to stay completely physically fit, in good shape, so when summer comes, I can find a new environment.

"At the end of the transfer window Tottenham Hotspur and Zenit made loan bids but I decided to stay, I believed that I would get another chance at Juventus.

"I judged it wrongly, now it turns out it was better that I left. I'll wait another month until the end of the championship and we'll part ways."
