Redknapp wants ‘surplus to requirements’ defender.
Tottenham want to sign Micah Richards in January because some more money and extended exposure to the central London nightclub scene is what he really needs to make him knuckle down and stop running about like an extremely athletic confused man trying to find the right night-bus stop at 3.30am in an unknown provincial town.

If Mark Hughes is willing allow Micah Richards to leave Eastlands, and the Man City defender has spent two of the last three games sitting on the bench, then Harry Redknapp would do well to capture the England international. Whilst Tottenham have a few centre backs to hand, a large chunk of them are perennially injured and quite why Micah isn’t getting more of a chance at City is beyond me. Therefore it does seem a distinct possibility that the north London side could be the favourites to land the Birmingham born lad.
When the youngster first hit the scene he was attracting all sorts of attention and was a regular in the senior England set up but his career has stuttered somewhat of late but at just 21 he has great potential. Some sources are valuing the adaptable defender in the region of £9m which in today’s market would be an absolute steal.
