Harry Redknapp insists that Tottenham are nowhere near to completing a deal to sign Newcastle striker Andy Carroll.
Spurs have been chasing a deal for England target-man Carroll, but Redknapp poured cold water on the transfer talk by claiming Newcastle were resisting any offers.
He said: ‘I can’t see Carroll coming here, he’s a good player but Newcastle won’t sell him.’
‘He’s a good player, he’s a handful, you’d like to have him in your team. But we are nowhere near getting Andy Carroll. How much is he? You are talking £30million to 40million.’ (Daily Mail)
Tottenham Hotspur boss Harry Redknapp has never been particularly reluctant to share his transfer targets with the media.
His pursuit of Andy Carroll was hardly been a secret, but with the Magpies so reluctant to sell, it looks like Spurs will have to look elsewhere.
Carroll has proven himself in the Premier League after adapting seamlessly to life back in the top flight with eleven goals already this season, and impressed on a first England appearance, but quite understandably Newcastle United want to keep hold of their most valuable assets.
With Liverpool looking most the likely club to sign Ajax and Uruguay striker Luis Suarez, and Darren Bent set to move to Aston Villa, finding a top class striker on the transfer market will be quite a tough task for Tottenham, but their game against Manchester United proved that it is the one thing they are really missing from being title challengers.
