Transfer news: Gylfi Sigurdsson happy to have joined Tottenham in 2012
Gylfi Sigurdsson has no regrets at having favoured a move to Tottenham Hotspur over Liverpool in the summer of 2012.

Having impressed during a loan spell at Swansea City in 2011/12, Sigurdsson was heavily linked with a permanent switch to a number of Premier League sides.
Brendan Rodgers' decision to swap life at the Liberty Stadium for that at Anfield was believed to have put Liverpool in pole position to secure his signature.
Sigurdsson, though, took the decision to join an ambitious project in north London, as opposed to one in the north west, with an £8.8million transfer completed from Hoffenheim.
Things have not gone entirely to plan for the Icelandic playmaker at White Hart Lane, with Spurs again struggling to break into the top four.
In contrast, Liverpool are pushing hard for the Premier League title, but Sigurdsson believes his decision to snub the Reds will be vindicated in time.
He said in the Evening Standard: "People have asked me that, but at the time I was really happy to come to Tottenham, and I still am.
"I'm really enjoying it. It's a fantastic club and in the last couple of seasons we've shown the ambition to become better.
"Hopefully in the next couple of years it will be really good.
"Because they didn't qualify for Europe, Liverpool are playing one game a week and it's benefited them quite a bit, because they're fresh and ready to go in every game."
Sigurdsson is hoping he will get the chance to show Liverpool what they are missing when Spurs head to Merseyside on Sunday, with his dramatic late effort in a 3-2 victory over Southampton last time out offering a timely reminder to boss Tim Sherwood of his talents.
The 24-year-old added: "It's normal to make a couple of changes and it keeps everyone on their toes. You always have to be ready for the next game."
