The youngster was speaking to Swedish media (h/t Football.london), as he opened up about his decision to join the Swans from Sunderland.
The 19-year-old was speaking to Sportbladet (h/t Football.london) and said:
“We sat talking to Tottenham and they said they could not promise anything about playing time.
“Then I felt I could not make that choice.”
Reports had suggested the deal with Spurs fell through as Asoro’s agent wanted a higher wage for his client but the Sweden U21 striker claimed his decision wasn’t based on finances alone but also his development.
“It does not hurt to have higher pay, but I thought more about playing.
“If I want to compete seriously while playing with the U21 national team, I need to play in my club team as well.”
The 19-year-old has an assist to his name from five games this season and his move to Swansea should see him play more games than he would have at Spurs.
The youngster could have possibly played some of our cup games and made a few substitute appearances in the league. As it is, replacing Harry Kane in the line-up would be a tough task.
Asoro could have developed his game under one of the best managers in the Premier League but it will be interesting to see how he grows during his spell in the Championship with Swansea.
