“We’ve done the deal, he’s okay”


Harry Redknapp has dismissed talk that he has tapped up Ashley Young.

Rumours had been circulating about the Aston Villa winger moving to White Hart Lane, especially since Young has put his contract talks on hold.

Redknapp joked: “I’m tapping him up – I’ve been round his house a couple of times. We’ve done the deal; he’s okay.”

“We’ve got Gareth Bale – what would I do with him (Young)?” he said. “I can’t get Niko Kranjcar on the pitch; he’s a fantastic player.

“What am I going to do with another left winger, give myself another headache?

“I’m strong in those (wing) positions: I’ve got Aaron Lennon, got Gareth Bale, got Luka Modric who can play off the left. It’s hard enough as it is.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. It’s about time, what 3… 4yrs the media have been throwing this about… time to put it to bed and stop wasting your time writing about it..!!

  2. The fact that harry needs to even put voice to these obvious points says everything about the general quality of reporting surrounding transfer rumours

  3. the media have no self respect , unfortunatley in a world fueled by greed what do we expect , personaly i think were all doomed .

    time to give niko a little run out i think after the manure game .. coys
