Redknapp may sign Portsmouth players for Spurs

Redknapp may sign Portsmouth players for Spurs

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed that he could be interested in signing some of the players he took to Portsmouth before switching clubs at the weekend.
Redknapp quit Pompey for Spurs late Saturday night and said Tuesday that he could hire some of his former acquisitions when the next transfer window opens on Jan. 1.
Those players could include midfielder Lassana Diarra, striker Peter Crouch and England forward Jermain Defoe, who left Tottenham for Portsmouth nine months ago and had his name chanted by Spurs fans in Redknapp's first game in charge.
"If Portsmouth want to sell some of their players, there's an open market," Redknapp said in an interview with BBC Radio 5. "They've got some fantastic players there. Absolutely top, top players, they really have."
Spurs are still bottom of the Premier League despite Sunday's 2-0 win over Bolton, a predicament largely due to a failure to score goals and a lack of tenacity in midfield.
Defoe left Tottenham because he was an irregular pick behind Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane, but his rivals have since left the club and Defoe has hit 14 goals in 21 Premier League matches for Portsmouth.
Defoe is one of six former Tottenham players at Portsmouth, including Crouch, Sol Campbell and Sean Davis.
