Spurs Consider Fresh Approach for £5m Defender With Occasional Bouts of Craziness

Redknapp sets sights on veteran

The Rumour

Harry Redknapp is considering a fresh approach for Manchester City centre back Richard Dunne in his quest for a new defensive linchpin.

With Ledley King still dogged by a persistent knee problem, Tottenham manager Redknapp wants to strengthen the middle of his defence this summer.

Dunne, 29, could be made available for a cut-price fee of around £5m.

The Analysis

On his day Richard Dunne is a centre back who can be relied upon to put in a performance of determination, passion and grit but he does occasionally go missing at an important time and can make elementary errors but thankfully for Man City these instances have lessened over the years.

Harry Redknapp would dearly love another defender to help cope with the inevitable loss to injury for bit portions of the season by Jonathan Woodgate and Ledley King, Dunne could well be that man and can also do a good job at right back if needed.

The Likelihood

Dunne to Spurs: As the big names start to arrive at Eastlands the Irishman may well find himself surplus to requirements so this deal could well suit all parties.
