Spurs have apparently ended their pursuit of former striker Jermain Defoe.
The Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp, who was in charge of Portsmouth when they bought the England striker in 2007, is looking to add some depth to the London club’s striking resources which includes Russian international Roman Pavlyuchenko who is cup tied in the Uefa Cup.
However Redknapp has revealed his belief that Portsmouth are considering an offer from another club, possibly Manchester City or Aston Villa, that he’s not prepared to match.
I think they’ve a massive offer from somebody for him, so good luck to them – I paid about £9m.
He is a good player but we’re not going to pay over the top for anyone.
