According to this newspaper, and not me, Harry has already more or less sealed his first major White Hart Lane signing!
Stewart Downing is poised to sign forTottenham Hotspur in a £12million January transfer window deal.
The Middlesbrough and England winger will be Harry Redknapp’s first major transfer since he replaced Juande Ramos at White Hart Lane six weeks ago.
Downing’s decision to switch to Spurs has been influenced by his close relationship with former Boro team-mate Jonathan Woodgate. Downing’s sister is the Tottenham central defender’s girlfriend. (Daily Mail)
So this source suggests the deal is all but done for the left winger but as I have said before I really don’t see what all the fuss is about with this England man. He isn’t the type of player who would fit into a side aiming for a top six place and that is why in my opinion most big sides have steered clear of the Boro man, I will be surprised if Harry makes this move as he is usually a pretty shrewd investor. Do any Tottenham fans want to see Downing sign for the club?
Brand New Feature. (1-10 scale, One = Pure make believe, Ten = is a transfer all but complete)
