Redknapp may well happily take Steve Bruce’s money.

Given the fact that Scottish international Alan Hutton has fallen down the pecking order at White Hart Lane it wouldn’t surprise me if Sunderland did indeed come in for the £6m rated full back and I think that should an offer come in then Harry would probably happily take the money.
The 24 year old right back hasn’t overly impressed since his move from Rangers to Tottenham and as with most players brought in before Redknapp’s reign, with some obvious notable exceptions, he could well be deemed surplus to requirements. Hutton’s one Premier League start came in the club’s demolition of Hull City but he seems unlikely to unseat first choice Vedran Corluka and has only been brought on for sub appearances as the club had to cope with the loss of centre backs through injuries and therefore pushed the Croat into the centre of defence accordingly.
A move to the Stadium of Light could well rejuvenate a career that could become stifled in north London as the Redknapp quite rightly sees other players as being far superior to the Glasgow lad.
