Tottenham Hotspur defender Anthony Gardner says it was not a difficult decision to accept a move to Hull City.
Gardner is due to join the Premier League new boys on loan with a view to a £2.5million permanent switch in January.
The 26-year-old made just six appearances for Spurs last season and also spent a frustrating spell on loan at Everton.
He is now keen to play regular first-team football and admits he is looking forward to his stint at the KC Stadium.
Thinking about future
"You always have to think about the decisions you make in football because it's important for your future," Gardner told the Hull Daily Mail.
"I had to think about the direction that my career was going in. I wasn't playing at Tottenham and then didn't get the chance on loan at Everton either.
"There's a lot of change going on at Tottenham and the decision was made in my mind that I needed to come out and play football.
"Hull came and sold the club to me. I spoke to the manager and the chairman and I decided that I wanted to come up here and give it a crack.
"I love playing football, so the decision was not that tough for me in the end."
