Transfer news: Tottenham were interested in Scott Loach but declined from making a bid
Ipswich goalkeeper Scott Loach is not disappointed that Tottenham declined to make a move for him in recent years.
The 24-year-old had been linked with a move to White Hart Lane but, after a move failed to materialise, made the switch to Ipswich Town.
“Malky said there had been a bid but that Watford wanted to keep me,” he said.
“At the time I was really flying and enjoying my football, and it would have been a great move for me.
“I think I was only 21 at the time and had reached the 100-game mark. Joining Spurs would have been great for me, working with all the great players there, but I later asked myself if I would have played as often as I did with Watford.
“I’ve always wanted to play for England and that hasn’t changed. I want to be around the set-up when I’m older, say 28 or 29, and I have the opportunity now to rack up 300 or 400 games by the time I’m that age.
“All things considered I believe this is definitely the best place for me at the moment.”
