Spurs unwanted striker Sergei Rebrov has passed a medical and will complete a move to Turkish club Fenerbache.

The Ukrainian has agreed an 18-month loan deal with an option for a permanent move.

The move will come as relief to both player and club. Rebrov has not made a single first team appearance this season, while Spurs will be happy to reduce their wage bill.

Rebrov moved to England from Dynamo Kyiv in 2000 in a deal worth £11 million. However, since Glenn Hoddle arrived at White Hart Lane, he has barely figured and this season, he has been frozen out altogether.

Rebrovhas placed the blame for his inactivity firmly at the feet of Hoddle, whom he believes has ruined his career.

“Glenn Hoddle broke my heart and my career,” Rebrov told the News of the World.

“I am 100 per cent sure that if he had never come to Spurs I would have become a big star here.

“From the moment he arrived everything changed for me.”

The Ukrainian was on the verge of signing for Fenerbahce two weeks ago, but the deal stalled and Rebrov opened talks with Fulham and looked set for a switch to Craven Cottage, until he voiced concerns about the uncertainty surrounding Fulham boss Jean Tigana’s future with the club.
