Harry Redknapp has hinted that he could be finished on recruiting strikers, following the arrival of Peter Crouch.

Tottenham fans are hoping that Daniel Levy will bring in Klaas-Jan Huntelaar from Real Madrid, but it looks as if that deal could now be dead.

“(Crouch) has joined the club. He has had a medical and everything was fine,” said Redknapp. “We now have four strikers as it looks like Darren Bent could move. I believe he is close to doing a deal with Sunderland.

“He gives us a bit of a different option. We now have four top strikers which is what you need at every club and so I am delighted to have Crouchy. He is different to almost anyone else in the league in terms of his size and the way he plays the game, so I am pleased to have him.

“With him, Robbie (Keane) Jermain Defoe and (Roman) Pavlyuchenko we have a good strikeforce.”

  1. “With him, Robbie (Keane) Jermain Defoe and (Roman) Pavlyuchenko we have a good strikeforce.”
    Hmmm. there is really no need to wait for the “We would like to thank Darren….” message on the club site is there :D

  2. What a load of Bollocks, bloody Peter Crouch, what a massive surprise, and looks like we are set to miss out on the one star name who could of taken us further than before. Its not ever year that the like of huntelaar are a) available b) willing to sign for us and c) have no other serious competition for his signature, instead harry wants to team up with all the players who make him feel comfortable, will someone please tell him he is no longer at pompey and just stopping in the premiership is not good enough. Its a VERY VERY sad day for Tottenham Hotspurs, again all the faithful have had there hopes built up only to be shattered again. I give up,

  3. Take Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and ship out zero strike threat Keane.. is he a midfielder now?? He used to play deep but at least be a threat in front of goal.. now my mum is more of a threat trust me!

    If i had to i would even sacrifice Pav for the Hunt. This guy is of the quality and stike rate to take Spurs into the top four and progress.

  4. Harry says Crouchy brings us something different and I just worked it out – he’ll bring us our own eclipse of the sun!

  5. we need huntelaar not crouch if we are to get into the top four i think all at spurs have lost it saving money again buying second rate players
