Harry Redknapp has revealed he does not expect Carlo Cudicini to play again this season.

Cudicini suffered major injuries in a motorbike accident, fracturing both wrists and his pelvis.

Reports had suggested the goalkeeper’s career might be over, but Redknapp is hopeful he might be able to play again next season.

Spurs have been linked with moves for a number of ‘keepers since the accident to fill the gap left by the Italian, but Redknapp has denied any truth in these rumours.

“He faces a long, hard road back from this, but I think he is going to play again and he is convinced of it.

“He will be on crutches for about 12 weeks. I can’t imagine he’ll play again this season and most of his early rehab work will have to be done at home.

“Carlo was in good spirits for someone who has been through a trauma like this. But he is a strong character and a fantastic professional.

“We have a few ‘keepers on our book. But I am not sure what we will do at present. There has been speculation linking us with several goalkeepers, but they are pretty much no-goers.”

Spurs have recently been linked with Ben Foster of Manchester United, Watford’s Scott Loach and Steve Mandanda at Marseilles in recent times.
