South Korean defender Lee Young-pyo has criticised PSV Eindhoven for hindering his chances of joining Tottenham.

Spurs chief Martin Jol has submitted an offer – reported to be €2m – to PSV for the full-back, but the Dutch champions are holding out for a higer offer.

“For three years I have done everything for this club,” he told De Telegraaf.

“When I was sick, I still played. But now, when I have a great chance, they block my future.

“I didn’t want to get angry, but I am.

“When Park was talking with Manchester, they said it was better if he didn’t move to such a big team, because he would end up on the bench.

“Now they only want to sell me to one of Europe’s top clubs, despite Tottenham being a much better option for me.

“PSV have never blocked moves for players who can make a step forward in their careers: Robben, Kezman, Park, they have all left the club.

“So am I not a big player?”
