Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a deal to sign Bongani Khumalo from SuperSport United in January subject to a work permit.
The 23-year-old South African central defender impressed during a loan spell at Spurs in September and will add some much needed cover to the back four.
Speaking last month, Redknapp said of the player: “He’s not expensive. We had him over on trial and we like him.
“He’s got potential and we’ve got a tie-up with the club SuperSport so we’ve taken him on.
“It will be a great chance for the kid. He’s a great lad. He comes from a poor background and he’s desperate for a chance and we’re going to give him a chance.”
