“Harry Redknapp said he liked him”


Harry Redknapp

The agent of New York Red Bulls striker Macoumba Kandji has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are interested in the player.

Kandji was born in Senegal but moved to the United States in 2003 to attend high school in North Carolina.

“There have been Premier League clubs interested,” agent Richard Trafford told Soccernet. “Harry Redknapp said he liked him, the Spurs backroom staff spoke to him after the game and enquired what his situation was.

“[Emmanuel] Adebayor and [Kolo] Toure came up to him after the City game and said ‘you are doing really well over here but you are the kind of player that could play in the UK’. Since then there have been some discussions and, obviously, Manchester City have very big targets, but they said he is one to keep an eye on.

“One of Crystal Palace’s club agents called us and said they were very interested. Everyone wants to know what his visa situation is as well, including Blackpool.

“In Europe, Olympiakos, Marseille, Paris Saint Germain, St Etienne and Lens have all called us. [There have been] two calls from Portuguese clubs and one from Atalanta in Italy, FC Copenhagen. There is a lot of interest.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Kandji, i watched him play the other night against spurs and thought exactly the same thing, he should be playing for us. Maybe a more realistic transfer target?? Some of the skill he possesses is amazing, i watched him do several little step-over flicks into the box and his huge stride gives him pace coming forward as well. The only problem is I can't really see where he might fit in to our squad?

  2. Ye i seen this guy the other night and thought he was a good talented player he seems to have it all he's tall pacey and has skill but whether he is a good goal scorer remains to be seen. Has anyone got any ideas on his record?
