Deano's in the house
Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).
Dean Richards describes himself as more settled at the club now and ready to make an increased impact next season.
The bedding-in process has been accelerated by the fact that Deano moved into a property in the area and is reaping the benefits of having his family around him.
"I'm more settled now," said Deano. "I've moved into my house and it was a bit of a bind because I was renting before.
"I'm pleased to be in my house now, I've been there for a while now and a feel better in myself now.
"Next season I can come back and everything will be perfect for me."
Dean admits that the upheaval of switching clubs during the course of a season can be a trying time. The fact that the season is underway leaves little time for preparing for the move and house-hunting. It is now all in the past for the powerful central defender.
"I think it does because it means hotels, finding accomodation and being seperated from your family.
"You miss pre-season and it's a bit strange really.
"I feel like I've settled in now and I've got to know the lads throughout the season and feel part of it now.
"Next season I can go on and be a bit stronger."
