He is behind the likes of Gareth Bale, Aaron Lennon and Rafael Van der Vaart in the midfield pecking order and his future at the club is in the balance.
He has been linked with Bayern Munich and a host of premier league clubs including Newcastle and Everton recently but this loan move now looks the most likely deal. Celtic are willing to pay his 45k a-week wages and he will surely become a regular in their first eleven.
Niko Kranjcar is a great player, technically he fits in the Spurs system comfortably and is an excellent back-up player. There strongest line-up is so good at present, he is normally warming the bench and someone who boosts his quality should be a regular for many premier league sides.
Is the loan move a good transfer for the player himself? Will Tottenham miss him if injuries occur and players become tired? Or will Tottenham cash in for him as he is valued at £6m-£8m?
He will become a great signing for Celtic, Newcastle and Everton no doubt but maybe Spurs could strike a swap deal with either of the premier league clubs. Interest in Steven Pienaar and Andy Carroll has been expressed in recent times. Do Tottenham really need these players though?
