Tottenham in for Cahill and Pienaar.
Gary Cahill and Steven Pienaar are at the top of Harry Redknapp’s wish list according to Goal.com. The Tottenham boss steered Spurs into the Champions League last season and is now looking to strengthen the squad this summer. The Mail on Sunday has reported he will be keeping a close eye on Pienaar when he travels to South Africa for the BBC. Redknapp hopes to benefit from Chairman Daniel Levy’s charity for his other target, Bolton captain Gary Cahill who could cost as much as £15 million.
Dawson backs Englands Spurs.
Michael Dawson believes the five Tottenham players donning England shirts this summer will be important to the countries success. Dawson, who was drafted in just yesterday to replace the injured Rio Ferdinand, is confident his teammate Ledley King will play an important part in South Africa so long as he stays fit. He told The Mirror: “he brings calmness to the whole team. When he is fit, he is world class.” The other Spurs players that hope to show off in South Africa are Jemain Defoe, Peter Crouch and Aaron Lennon.
Palacios out of World Cup.
Wilson Palacios has been ruled out of the World Cup with a shin injury according to Goal.com. The Tottenham midfielder was stretchered off the pitch in Honduras’s final warm-up match against Romania. Honduras are now without their most recognised figure, and indeed their star player, as they prepare for their opening match in Group H against Chile on 16 June. The Tottenham midfielder joins a host of big names who have been ruled out of the competition through injury, including Michael Ballack, Michael Essien, Didier Drogba and Rio Ferdinand.
