Feb. 28, 2010 - Lisbon, Portugal - epa02059979 Sporting's Yannick Djalo celebrates after scoring the opening goal against FC Porto during their Portuguese premier league soccer match at Alvalade stadium in Lisbon, Portugal, 28 February 2010.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has rejected talk the club could land Sporting Lisbon ace Yannick Djalo this summer.

The 24-year-old was reportedly on Spurs’ radar and the player’s agent Lionel da Silva did little to dampen the speculation.

Lionel da Silva claimed White Hart Lane was the Guinea-Bissau Portuguese striker’s most likely destination.

However, while conceding that Djalo was a good player, Redknapp insists the Sporting ace is not in his plans.

“It’s not true,” confirmed Redknapp regarding the club’s possible move for Djalo.

“I believe he’s a good player, but he is not and never has been in our plans.” (Sky Sports)

If you are a living breathing footballer then there is a good chance that you have been linked with a move to Tottenham this summer. Harry Redknapp loves the transfer market and you can guarantee he has a notepad full of players he would love to bring in to improve his already impressive White Hart Lane squad ahead of the Champions League campaign they hope to be fighting in this season (once they get the qualifier out of the way).

So regardless of what Yannick Djalo’s agent may tell anyone, Redknapp has no interest in snapping up the 24 year old Sporting Lisbon man, not at all. Its a bit of an obvious ploy by the player’s representative though. Make up a rumour that links his client to a big move in the hope that your client either gets a better deal at his current club or a big move elsewhere.

Unfortunately Lionel da Silva has been found out. Expect him to link his player to Manchester City next.
