Given Harry’s reported uncertainty about the clubs starting keeper it’s not surprising he has been linked with a move for another goalie but this one would be a fantastic purchase!
Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a £7million move for Newcastle United’s Shay Given.
Harry Redknapp is quoted on Goal.com: “Any manager would have to be interested in him if he became available.” (fansfc.com)
Shay Given has been a tremendous servant to the St James’ Park outfit since he joined Newcastle from Blackburn 11 years ago and it would be a wrench for him to leave the club but he may feel that a new challenge would benefit him and one player who would surely hope this would happen is his long suffering understudy Steve Harper (who in 14 years at the club has managed just 65 league starts!). In my opinion Given could easily lay claim to being the top keeper outside the top four and if Redknapp snared him it would be a great signing indeed. Do Tottenham fans think that Redknapp could secure the Irish international?
