Tottenham Hotspur have suffered an injury blow with the news that Tom Huddlestone has broken down on his return from injury.
Huddlestone has been out with an ankle injury since November and the setback has left Redknapp considering he could leave the 24-year-old out of his 25-man squad.
He said: “Tom’s had a setback and it seems he’s going to be longer than we expected.
“His ankle is sore. He tried to do a bit of running and is still a long way away.
“We will have to look at his situation with regard to the 25 man squad.
“I am hoping he’ll be OK as he is important to us and is a fantastic player.
“We need him but we will have to make sure how it goes and discuss it with the medical people.”
Redknapp said: “We won’t get a new player. Where do you go to find a new player?
“It’s very hard. This window is about panic buying.”
