Redknapp also realises struggling Spurs desperately need another centre-half — and Portsmouth’s Sylvain Distin is No 1 choice.

Given Ledley King’s knees and Michael Dawson’s severe lack of ability, bringing an experienced head like Distin seems to be a very wise and effective solution to a problem that badly needs to be resolved in the club’s back line. The former Manchester City centre back still has some years in him and has shown during his time at Fratton Park that he is more than able to deal with the exertions of a busy season, he managed 45 starts in all last term.

He could helpfully provide stability at the back for Spurs, and could perhaps become part of a centre back trio, although he can also fill in at left-back. He should be available for as little as £5m, although Portsmouth will of course not want to sell him. Do Spurs fans think that Redknapp can lead the side away from the drop zone this term?
